(PRWEB) September 24, 2015 -- Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a new Drill Press Fence featuring a specially designed dust port that is angled to the side, minimizing interference with the drill post and providing up to 3" of extra clearance compared to others on the market. The Drill Press Fence can be fit to many existing drill press tables and includes a free plan for those who opt to build their own.
Until now, drill press dust collection has been an afterthought, resulting in awkward and cumbersome setups that interfere with the work area of the table. The new Drill Press Fence dust port, which fits 2-1/2" dust hose, is angled upward and off to the side, keeping dust collection components clear of both the work area and the drill post. This allows easier setups and maneuverability on the table surface.
"This new Drill Press Fence makes adjustments easier and opens up more drilling area," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of merchandising and product development. "The dust port is angled properly so it will stay clear of the drill post, allowing maximum clearance for workpieces between the post and the drill itself."
The Drill Press Fence is composed of an aluminum backbone and adjustable 3/4" melamine-coated MDF faces. The included flip stop can be anchored anywhere along the top T-track for repeatable drilling setups. The Drill Press Fence can be mounted to drill press tables via T-tracks or thru-slots and quickly positioned and secured with the included hardware.
The Drill Press Fence (53648) is priced at $69.99 and can be purchased at rockler.com or Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, visit http://www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
