If you want to make full use of your drill press or milling machine table, Palmgren makes a kit with just about everything you’d ever need, including a steel storage rack to neatly organize all the pieces.
Here’s the complete list of what’s included:
- Four 9⁄16″ T-slot nuts
- Four 5⁄8″ T-slot nuts
- Six flange nuts
- Four coupling nuts
- Six step block pairs
- Six step clamps
- 24 studs — four each 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 7″, and 8″ lengths
- Two 1-3⁄4″ wide U-clamp sets — each U-clamp set contains a 5″ stud, a flange nut, a ball joint, a U-clamp, and a 9⁄16″ T-slot nut
- Steel storage rack
At $140, this kit isn’t cheap, and it weighs 28 lbs, so shipping will definitely cost you — but you’ll never be lacking for ways to hold down your work. Sears sells what appears to be the identical kit, rebranded as Craftsman, for $100.
