Drill Press Depth Stop

Drill Press Depth Stop

With a few pieces of simple hardware, you can build this add-on to make drilling holes at a consistent depth faster and easier.

The depth stop on some drill presses seems like an afterthought. Setting it can be a fussy operation. That’s where the upgrade you see here really shines. Plus, it adds the ability to lock the quill at any height. First, a steel bracket mounts to the side of the drill press. A wood collar fits around the quill’s metal collar. Attached to the wood collar is a threaded rod that passes through the bracket for adjusting the quill position and push-button nuts act as stops on the rod.
