Drill Press Depth Stop / Butée de profondeur pour perceuse à colonne

Ce ne sont pas tous les modèles de perceuse à colonne qui possèdent une butée de profondeur, ou d’un modèle rapide à utiliser, raison pour laquelle je veux partager cette technique qui vient de me passer par l’esprit.

Not all drill press models feature a depth stop, or an easy to use model, reason why I want to share this technique that just went through my mind.


Une fois la profondeur déterminée, il s’agit de pincer un coin sur la table de la perceuse de façon à ce que le levier s’y immobilise à la profondeur requise ou désirée.

Once the depth set, you need to clamp a wedge onto the drill press table in such a way that the lever strikes it to desired or required depth.

    Hi Serge,
    How clever of you to come up with such a brilliant idea, but then again I am not surprised as you are a genius at solving these types of challenges in the work shop. I will definitely incorporate your solution when using my drill press. Merci beaucoup.

      Thank you Brian,
      It would be a shame to keep those ideas for myself!
      Staying home during this pandemic gives more time for good “thinking”. Lol

    Hi Serge,
    One more thing on the depth stop for the drill press, and in particular the wedge. May I suggest that where the clamp is to be located on the edge of the drill press table, that a notch be cut out to accommodate the clamp with the cut out being parallel to the drill press table. This should make the clamp more stable. Just a thought

      Great thought Brian!
      After reading your comment another idea crossed my mind to improve this technique. By nailing a strip of wood wider than the wedge towards the right and longer towards the front will allow clamping the assembly from the side too.
      So, thank you for haven shared your “just a great thought”!
      Best,
      Serge

    Excellent idea Serge to use a wedge. The other advantage to a wedge is that the increments along the slope are spread out a greater distance than the actual depth so it is much easier to read the scale.
    Cheers Mark

      Hi Mark, Lower price drill presses don’t even have a depth stop, others neither a table rising crank.
