Title: Bench drill press modification
Post by: phpenguin on November 12, 2014, 13:34:57 PM
I bought a used foot switch from a scrapyard and installed it on my drill press.

After few hours of test run, I replaced all the tape connections and organized wires to finish the modification.

Thanks Kam.

That one is like a kid's play compared to my Kossel Mini 3D Printer project.
It has been about three months since I started the project from scratch.
