Adjustable V-Block System
Angled holes and odd-shaped workpieces are no match for this handy drill press accessory.
If you’ve ever tried to drill a hole in a dowel or oddshaped object (like a turned leg), you probably know how frustrating a job it can be. It’s a real challenge to hold these kinds of workpieces steady and accurately on the flat table of a drill press. And it’s even trickier if you have to drill an angled hole. Usually, I wind up cobbling together some jury-rigged device to support the workpiece in question. But since building this adjustable V-block system, that’s no longer a problem.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
