Mini Drill Mods For Drill Press Stand

Sunday, June 26, 2016

I have a proxxon mini drill and a drill press stand for small projects. The drill has a trigger switch with mechanical lock to hold the trigger. The locking feature is hard to operate when the drill is attached to the stand. Also the lock sometimes doesn't work properly.

My solution for this problem is installing a toggle switch that bypass the trigger switch. I'm a big fan of a toggle switch as it can be easily installed. All you need to do is drilling a hole for the switch.

In this simple mod, my plan was leaving what's already there and adding a new feature.

When the toggle is ON, the motor runs. When the toggle is OFF, the trigger switch is used as a hand drill.

If you use a drill press with drill press stand, this mod would make the operation very easy.
