We use letter based revs prior to release to the shop. Once all the signatures are collected, especially the customer's, we go "yellow", Rev 0 and print on yellow paper. Later revs are numeric.

Back to the topic at hand.
I've seen them done both ways. Whichever way it is done, it is important to maintain the same process.

I didn't really understand your problem with the cutters and the base. Here is the stand I will make if I ever need one.

You guys and your fancy mag drills making me want to go buy one even though I only have one job for one...

By the way if anyone with one lives near Western Wisconsin and wants to rent it out for a day, let me know! I need to drill some holes in my welding table.

Did you add in this riser? It does not seem normal to not be able to use annular cutters.

Yes, when I did regular drawing work, we just used letters.

Got into buildings and such work, with large contracts, and subs.

They said, use numbers (for any changes) after the drawings are handed out (for bid).

When the job is awarded, we strip all revision blocks, issue the set as "new".

Then, as the job is progressing, any changes are released with letter revisions.

The reason for this new riser is to use a annular slug cutter for a small part without taking the mag drill off the "orange" base. When I want to use standard drill with a Jacobs chuck for a small part, no riser is required since the adapter and the Jacobs chuck reach down to the "orange" base. The hole in the 1/2" plate I wanted to be a little more precise, since the hole would be used for an arbor in the lathe.

The problem was with the adapter for the drill chuck and the extra length of the drill bits. My base is about the same height as yours, just a little different in shape. I made the base primarily to use a standard drill chuck to adjust for the extra length of the drill chuck, longer drills and the adapter. When I use the jig it is only for using the annular cutters, which are shorter, because the stroke on my mag drill is not long enough to reach the base extension.

With these stands/bases, are you just using the magnet to hold it in place or do you add extra hold downs of some sort?

The base is bolted to the bench. The jig is bolted to the base.
