Add accurate repeatability when drilling holes, plus convenient dust collection to your drill press with Rockler’s new Drill Press Fence. It features a 24-in. extruded aluminum spine for flatness, with a 2-1/4-in. flip stop to help you set up precise hole placement on your workpiece. Two 12-in. MDF faces slide open or closed to open a dust port channel, as well as to straddle around Forstner bits or sanding drums. The plastic dust port fitting behind is designed to be low-profile, in order to minimize obstruction with the drill press column. It swivels up so the fence can be moved more easily on the table. The port has a 2-1/2-in. O.D. (2-1/4-in. I.D.) opening for a typical shop vac nozzle.
You can mount this fence to a drill press table equipped with T-tracks or through slots spaced 16-1/4-in. to 19-3/4-in. apart. Instructions for a building a drill press table are included, and the fence comes with the required bolt and star knob hardware to install it. Rockler’s Drill Press Fence (item 53648) sells for $69.99 online or at Rockler stores nationwide.
