Default Mag Drill Jig

Had a need to use the mag drill today to drill a 3/4" hole in 1/2" plate. With the riser the mad drill sits on, it is too high for using the annular cutters for small parts down on the extended base. With the drill chuck adapter I made some time ago, it works well since the adapter and drill chuck length is just right to drill parts on the extended base.

So grabbed some 4" and 2" tube steel and sawed off the lengths I needed. Put a 1" weld on each side of the 2" pieces welded to the 4". Something that needed done long ago. Took and hour to cut and weld the pieces together. Only took 30 seconds to drill the hole.

Drill a couple holes, tack bolts into the 4” going down through your base, and a couple wingnuts and it’s be quick to take on and off, and no c-clamps required for that part.

That is another thing that is planned to do in the next week. Clean the welding table off. Gonna make some shelving just for spray cans. I am pretty good at starting projects, just no so good at organizing.

An hour isn't bad. I had to make a thingy for the mag drill that took a whole damn day, and some change Just to drill one stinkin' hole It'll sit on the shelf until my estate sale probably

Whole thing coulda been done on a horizontal mill/boring machine in about an hour with the time to do a setup

Revisions are "letter based" after the product is built.

Number based revisions are for after the drawing is released, but before the shop builds the first one.

So make it "Revision A".....

Not to derail the thread, but that's an interesting concept.

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.
