Here’s one use for your drill press that you may not have thought of: making an automated hacksaw. All you have to do is to salvage an old gear box to turn a crank shaft connected to the saw, and then you can attach the whole thing onto the drill press.
You can make deep cuts with this tool that would be awkward with an angle grinder or exhausting with a manual saw. Some knowledge of woodworking is required to fully realize this project, so we suggest you watch this video to see how you can make your own automated hacksaw.
