Get easy adjustability and precise repeatability on your drill press with the Rockler Drill Press Fence. The fence features adjustable MDF faces that let you straddle large forstner bits and sanding spindles, plus a flip-down stop for precise placement of a wide variety of holes. The included low-profile dust port fitting is specially designed for minimal obstruction with the drill press column, retaining up to 3'' more throat depth over typical dust ports. It also angles up and away to keep the hose from impeding movement of the fence on the table. You can design your own drill press table or build the table outlined in the instructions, a design that's easily customized to fit the needs of your drill press. Mounted via T-tracks or thru-slots, the fence is quickly positioned and secured with the included hardware.


Features:
  • Made of durable materials, including ABS dust port, extruded aluminum fence and MDF subfences
  • Fence comes fully assembled
  • MDF subfences adjust laterally without tools
  • Upward facing T-track allows addition of included flip stop and other optional accessories
  • Additional flip stops available (#31214, sold separately)
  • 2-1/2'' split in fence provides room for included dust port

Nice Product
I previously purchased just the vac port and then saw this on sale. I love the aluminum behind the MDF which gives this a boost over the custom piece that I previously made.

Dust collection works great!
Received by request as a gift from my wife. I had wanted to build a drill press table for years and finally decided to do it. I first used the fence before making a the table while building my tablesaw crosscut sled. I clamped it to the drill press' metal table on top of a piece of plywood to drill some holes all at the same distance from the edge. I was amazed by how well the dust collection worked. I then built my drill press table from scratch, photo included with this review.

Drill Press Fence
This is a great addition to my new (shop built) drill press table. It's of high quality and a value for the money. The built in dust collection port is also a real plus.

I have the original Craftsman cast iron table on my drill press and while it will probably outlast me, this fence and the table I'll build from the instructions will work much better for precision work.

THIS FENCE WILL WORK WELL WITH MY DRILL PRESS TABLE
THOMAS H on Dec 27, 2016
My old Delta table drill press had the iron table and I was always fussing and re-measuring to make sure the hole was in the right place. Now I make one set-up with the fence and can drill away to my hearts content.

A fence is a backbone of a drill press table. The large central work area , dust control, and flip stop allow efficient work at the drill press.

JOHN K on Apr 26, 2018
Does Rockler sell a table top that will match up with this item as opposed to having to build it myself? I know this sounds lazy but I feel like a professionally made one will have tighter specifications than anything I could do and would give me more consistency in my finished products.
Jeff H on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have done an extensive search and it appears they do not. But, it does say in the description that the fence includes plans to build your own table.
Are additional flip stops available?
charlie a on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Buy a 2 1/4 stop. it is the same as what comes with the fence.
What is the difference between the this router table fence and the drill press fence? They appear to be the same design.

Rockler Router Table Fence
Rockler Router Table Fence
BEST ANSWER: The Router fence is taller(by about an inch?) and wider(32" vs 24"), also the center above the bit is connected compared to the drill press fence.
Does the drill press table plan included with the fence feature the rectangular table insert shown in the photos above, or does it feature the circular insert shown in the "see it in action" video (which requires a CNC machine I don't own)?
RJSpiotta on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Table Plan that came with the fence, shows a 4" W by 5 1/2" front to back - Rectangle.
I made mine 4" Square, positioned so the drill point hits center left to right, but hits 1 1/4" from the top of the insert. This allows me to rotate it 4 times on each side before putting in a fresh one.
What size are the bolts for the t track?
Tom S on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bolts that attached the fence to the drill press table are 5/16. The fence stop that rides in the track at the top is also 5/`16. The track the fence bols ride in and the track on the top top of the fence are the same: the standard Rockler track - 9/16 wide track that receives a 1/2 rounded rectangular head on each of the 5/16 bolts.
I have already made a drill press table with T tracks in it. How far apart are the slots for mounting the fence to the table?
Larry D on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I Used 3\4" wide t track .from center of each track its 19" apart. The fence bolts have room for adjustment .I made my drill press table withextensions on each end so when I have long lengths to drill I can support the piece and keep it flat against table. I got the plans from woodsmith magazine.I highly recommend this magazine. It has furniture plans (step by step directions) and very useful tips . it's $20\yr subscription and well worth it if you make furniture or projects for around house.I also made a rolling cabinet for my bench top drill press.12 drawers that have dividers that organize all my nails,screws,bolts&hardware.I included some pictures for you too. My chopsaw on wheels with adjustable legs and fold up too and a fence that has a stop so you can make exact lengths of wood for your projects.if you have other questions my email is mpieperjr@yahoo. Com and I'll answer any of your questions. I hope this answered your question
Would this be suitable for a 10" Ryobi drill press?
Jeffrey M on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know, I drilled wo holes in it to fit my Jet drill press and it works great
Has anyone tried making a table and using this drill press fence on a table top drill press or is the factory drill table too small to support it satisfactorily?
Quiggley on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you have to make a table for drill press. Go to Woodsmith and type in drill press table in search . I made the table w/. Adjustable extensions for long pieces that need to be drilled.
In the drill press table plans, how far back from the front edge is the crossrail?
davidbitton on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi David!
I didn't use the drill press plans. I made my own table.
You can make the table as you wish.
Can this fence be used on a 24 inch router table?
