The second machine tool I wanted to recreate was the drill press I made a couple of months back. It’s a bit more complex than the lathe, and requires you prise apart two minifig steering wheels. They can put up a bit of resistance, but the hole wouldn’t be bar-sized if they weren’t meant to come off right..? 😉
The build is broken into a few smaller chunks, starting with the base, the main column, controls and finally the actual drill head. Once again you can view all the images inline below, or download the full PDF and parts list.
