Drill Press Table Lift Easier Than I Thought

Post by RonB » Fri, 06 Aug 2004 03:49:40



My original message resulted in several good posts, some suggesting a
pully/counterweight solution.  I gathered a pully, cable and cable hardware
and calculated the size of counterbalances of various materials (sand,
cement, lead....).

Then I noticed several *** bungee-type tie downs on my shelf.  Came up
with the approach shown in photos (posted ABPW).  As is, it acutally requies
a
little more push to lower than to raise the table.  I will adjust tension
and strap when I get the Fence/Table assembly finished and installed.   A
coating of slide compound on the tube helped too.

Cost about $6 and a scounged *** bungee.

What I used is a non-silicon product called SLIPIT.  I bought it from
Grizzly and they offer it in both paste and spray form.  I use the paste and
you just brush it on, let is set for a moment and wipe it off.  It is a
pretty good protectant for cast iron tops too.  One can of paste will last a
long time.

This is weird. Am I hearing something almost verbatim from the past,
or just hearing things?

Sorry. It was the question "What is slide compound, and where do I get
it?" Sueddenly made this whole thread feel familiar.
