88% of 100

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.

  • 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)

This really ups your drill press to a whole new level.
Wasn’t sure if I really would use this regularly but this ended up making my drill press so much more versatile and functional. Sounds silly, but it really did strengthen the drill press. Adjustable back fence, easy, reliable and consistent settings, and a solid build makes this a 5-star product. I added Rockler T-track to 1” plywood to make a solid drill press table. And dust collection to boot! So happy I got this!
The complete setup!

Woodworking Experience:
I purchased this fence because of the vacuum port. Even when using the dust collection aspect when using my drill press as an overhead router, the dust collection has exceeded my expectations.

Resawing on the bandsaw has always been frustrating because I could never get even halves, let alone right angle sides. With this jig, I'm getting perfect cuts! Finally!

I have what I consider an excellent drill press table, but the old fence hasn’t measured up. This new fence has everything I need to complete the picture. Rockler products have never let me down.
Richard on Feb 2, 2020
It is the best drill press fence I have seen on the internet. The pricing was a great for the product.

Been looking at fences for a bit now so for $50 we'll see.
CoyFish on Aug 1, 2019
New Grizzly drill press doesn't include a fence. Rockler accessories are always excellent, so this looked like a good choice.

I bought a drill press awhile ago and have been meaning to build a nice table for it. This kit on sale (along with instruction to build a table) seemed like a great addition. Sometimes buying (for the right price) is better than trying to make your own version!

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.

Eric S on Jun 12, 2020
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 made my own Jeff but to my own needs. Your needs may be different.
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 Drill Press Fence
Rockler Drill Press Fence
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.
I'm wondering why the chamfer is at the top of the fence? Isn't the purpose of a chamfer to keep sawdust from getting in the way of sliding the piece along the fence?
Bobed on Sep 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It would probably be a good idea to have a notch or chamfer across the bottom of the fence for the very reason you mentioned but it could also make it difficult if you were drilling into thin stock. Just a best guess, the chamfer on top of the fence is for clearance of the flip stop. If you have a table saw it probably wouldn't be difficult to add a notch.
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.
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.
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
Is this fence compatible to a Jet JDP-17 Drill Press?
Paul K on Apr 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I’m not familiar with the specifics of that but it really has to do with your table and the slots. I have a custom table with 18” centers on the t track. You can probably max out at close to 20”. You will need probably at least 3” of depth.
The Rockler fence needs 16” or more spacing betweenthe drill press’s T-slots to anchor the fence to the table. Is there a way to adapt it to fit the Delta 18-900L’s table whose slots are approx 7-8” apart?
Don on Feb 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Don’t think there is a way to adapt the fence to the 7-8 inch spacing unless you want to modify the aluminum base by drilling holes in the aluminum and moving the t-bolts. i had that problem with my Jet drill press table. My solution was to make a nice big sturdy table out of wood, and put T-tracks in the bottom of it to fit the Jet table and several sets of T-track in the top with spacing to fit the Rockler fence. That design let me also use hold downs. Hope this helps.
Can this fence be used on a 24 inch router table?
Steve on Jun 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes! All you have to do is drill two holes in the railing to the "T" railing and you are good to go!
Would this be suitable for a 10" Ryobi drill press?
Jeffrey M on Apr 13, 2018
In the drill press table plans, how far back from the front edge is the crossrail?
davidbitton on Aug 20, 2018
I didn't use the drill press plans. I made my own table.
You can make the table as you wish.
