TILTING TABLE JIG

TILTING TABLE JIG1 Making the table

To bore angled holes without tilting the drill press table, use the tilting jig shown at right, built from solid stock and %-inch plywood. Refer to the illustration for suggested dimensions. Connect the jig top to the base using a sturdy piano hinge. Cut a ^-inch-wide slot in the sup­port brackets and screw each one to the top; secure the brackets to the base with wing nuts, washers, and hanger bolts.

Drilling angled holes

Center the jig under the drill press spindle, clamp the base to the table, and loosen the wing nuts. Use a pro­tractor and a sliding bevel to set the angle of the top, then tighten the wing nuts. Clamp the workpiece to the jig and bore the hole (below).
