Nice job, Farley. I know you will get great service from this. Mine is not dedicated but I use my drill press on a regular basis.

the triple lever hub stays in storage.
The tie bar will I think provide a small resistance against the way tubes twisting. Also provides an upper vertical stop. Necessary? At the least using it provides a place to 'store' it.
