Good grief!  That's quite the piece to lay-out there ...  Shocked ... painting the black styrene white is a clever fix for marking that ... BUT ... if your drawing is actual size (or can be scanned/printed to actual size), then you can just stick that on the styrene with a glue stick from the office supply shop.  It'll stand up to the cutting/handling, but can be peeled off when done.  FWIW.  Looking forward to more of the crazy drill press!  -- Dallas

Dallas,
I had thought about that but the scribing provides a finer and much more accurate line to work with.
The lines are really just guides as I will be using the tools measuring system for the cutting.
The "X" intersections (not on the drawing) also permit me to center a drill bit for nice smooth accurate radius'

With all the dimensions laid out holes were drilled.
I drilled the holes undersize then ream to the exact final dimension.
The one inch holes had to be exact as I dont have a reamer that big!



Then off to the router table.
I have a digital fence on the router table accurate to .001"
Thats why all the dimensions were written out.
Then a test cut and make sure the lines "line" up before cutting........



Not bad, a little sanding & filing....
I missed one cut, did it after the pic.
More soon.

IMMMMpressive!  I love the look of your model.  It might be thought of as just a simple drill press but it has so much visual interest, as if it were designed by a committee. Roll Eyes

It's great prototype to model and a great model of the prototype.

What a courageous undertaking!  Really cool to see it at this stage where we can study the assembly and all the bits and pieces ... and then comes the paint and finishing ... thanks for the detailed pix ... nice to follow along.  -- Dallas

It's looking decidedly more Jules Vern at the moment - I actually love this idea......and then promptly went off of it when they called it "steam punk" { and of course when I realised everyone and his dog were doing it}!

Nope! - I think this is is looking particularly interesting - sort of engages your attention.

Nice job Marty.  Really like the way all the gears fit perfectly together.

Table lift mechanism;



The threaded rod is 00-80, gearshafts are .062"
And yes, they do work to raise & lower the table.
Just not sure how durable the cast gears will be.
I looked for brass but could not find any that small.

Sweet!  Did you turn the little brass handle (and likewise the double-ended handle with the square bit in the middle elsewhere on the drill)?  -- Dallas
