Press your drill press into clamp­ing duty

WOOD - - SHOP TIPS - —Dale Daugh­erty, San An­to­nio, Texas

For odd-shaped or long glue-ups—such as at­tach­ing a lamp body to its base—a drill press of­ten serves as a fast, con­ve­nient, and ef­fec­tive clamp. For parts that fit well, you’ll get the nec­es­sary pres­sure, with­out stress­ing the press’s quill mech­a­nism. If your drill press doesn’t have a quill lock, sim­ply raise the ta­ble to get the nec­es­sary pres­sure, then lock the ta­ble in place.
