So not much to post today. That nice sensitive drill press plan got me thinking about materials. I know I had a couple of thick hunks of aluminum stored somewhere that might do. After a quick look through some storage boxes in one of the shops I found what I was looking for. They are both 6" long and over 2" thick at the min. point. I should be able to scale up the plan by close to 50%. While I was at it I pulled out a few other parts and materials that should help. I am in no rush on this project, probably early January, if I leave the materials out to remind me, ha, ha.
