Don't Use Broken Tools!!! Mold and Cast a Custom Drill Press Handle... AMAZING Inspiration by Lonnie Sexton

My 5 year old bench top drill press gets used almost daily. When the plastic handles started to crumble apart, it opened up a creative opportunity to replace them with a personal twist. These custom drill press handles are made using Amazing Crafting Products.

Next time something breaks, use it as inspiration. Before purchasing a stock replacement consider making your own. It may take a little extra time, but it’s easy and fun! 

Please come back and join us for more exciting projects, inspiration and tutorials.
