As long as you are going to have a 1/2" plate on top of your box you could go for some extra height also

Default Mag Drill

Chris, You mite want to add stops around the magnet like my drill It does two things one lines up drill to hole each time and two insures the mag drill does not spin under a load.

I was going to put the 1/2" plate inside the box, but maybe on top would be simpler.

I am going to do that as a safety measure.

This should be close with a 1/2" plate on top and your channel for the bottom

That's it. The notch was 3" deep and 2" high. Gonna go with your suggestion of putting the 1/2" plate on top too. More height can't hurt. Got the notch cut out and new pieces welded in and angle iron tabs welded. I will get a piece of 1/2" plate for the top tomorrow. I am going to add the alignment stops to the 1/2" plate Vernon suggested too.

Then I will cut the channel out and use the base bolting tabs to mark the mounting holes on the channel and drill them out and do the same to welding bench. After that I will drill a hole to test it. Then some paint and this will be one more project finished.

Final pics tomorrow.

I can see using this setup in place of my drill press quite often.

Yesterday welded on the 1/2" plate the drill sits on. Smoothed out the welds and knocked off the splatter. Wind was howling and made welding out side a bitch. Some of the gusts really rocked me. Welds were good just not pretty like I wanted. Drilled and tapped the 1/2" holes for the safety stops in the 1/2" plate. Using 1/1/2" bolts for the stops. Left 1/16" clearance between them for the drill .

Short day in the shop for me. Was In Cheyenne most of the day. Put a coat of primer on and a first coat of Allis Chalmers orange on then realized I had not drilled the holes to mount the base to the 12" channel.

Set the base on the channel after an hour and used my transfer punches for the first time to mark the holes in the channel. Yep, scratched the paint as it was not completely cured. Beat the hell out of a scribe and guessing where to center punch. Drilled the 3/8" holes and made a slight counter sink on each side.

Headed to an auction tomorrow so may have some time tomorrow PM to do the painting.

Finally done. As you can see from the pics I now have plenty of clearance for the Jacobs chuck. For smaller/shorter drills I will need to add a short 2x4. Clamp fits in real nice.

Question for Jack. Is the 1/4 turn pin below the switches to start stop the lube from the lube tank?

Drilled the first hole using the mag base today. Drilled halfway form one side using the Jacobs chuck adapter and a 1/4" pilot then flipped the plate over and drilled with the annular cutter without the adapter and Jacobs chuck.

Used 2 4x4 blocks as a spacer with the annular and 1 2x4 spacer with the adapter and Jacobs chuck. Hole size was 3/4" and the plate was 3/4". Kept it flooded with water soluble oil. The brushes have totally seated in with barely noticeable sparks at the commutator.

The fuzzy swarf was from the annular cutter and the skinny curls were from the standard drill. The steel plate was some sort of hardened steel. Clearly not a mild steel. Now to think up a project to use it on??????

Got the paint at ACE, and when I was looking over the colors, kinda searching for machinery gray, I saw the Allis Chalmers orange. Smiled and grabbed a can.
