There are other ways to do this, but none as easy as this cool kit from Fireball tools. They have a new line of fixture tables, that are truly some of the finest you could buy, but if you already have a welding table that you’d like holes in, or have been considering building your own fixture table, then this is the setup for you. With a mag drill and this bad boy here you can drill as many holes as you like, and have a couple of options with regards to the pattern and spacing. If you have a welding table you love, but wish it had holes in it, then this is the jam you need.
I’d love a fixture table, and hope to have one at some point, but I’m also looking at this and thinking that I could use it to add precisely located holes on a chassis table as well. Hmmm. I can see a lot of uses for this thing and I love it.
So if you want to build your own fixture table, already have a table you love that just needs holes, or are planning on something custom, this fixture from Fireball Tools could be just what you need. It’s more than just a plate with holes, it has hardened drill guides in EACH HOLE so they will stay precise and with a mag drill and annular cutter you can do this at home.
