Nice, any chance of posting the pics here for posterity?

Also, doesn't your wife get upset when you do all that fab work in her kitchen?

Hap, nice looking adapter.
But you need to add a lanyard to the mag drill to prevent in the event of a power failure, the drill from falling off. The lanyard wraps around the pipe and prevents the drill from falling too far, if the power fails.
Believe me it happens, I had one fall off a beam when I was drilling holes to install a pipe bridge between buildings on a job. I was glad the SS cable was clipped into the ironwork. It was thirty feet to ground.

Hap, it would have been nice if Walker had warned you to read the FAQ but we do not use embedded images here since about 2005 or 2006, I forget which.
This is explained in this part of the FAQ.
