I needed to mount various vices and jigs to my drill press; this is what I came up with: I mounted a 1 1/2" floor flange to 3/4 ply with #14 screws, ground one side of a 1 1/2" nipple to fit the clamp on the DP. Now when I need to change jigs I loosen the DP clamp, lift the current jig and replace with what I need tighten and away I go. thoughts?

Good idea...any problems with each table remaining perpendicular to CL of drill chuck?

So far no issues. When I grind the nipple to fit (it's just a little too large) I hold (wearing thick leather gloves) the nipple against a 1 x 30 belt sander and let the belt rotate the nipple while I use a slight pressure with the gloves to slow it down, I feel this gives the best chance of keeping the nipple round and not oblong. I may dress the shoulder of the floor flange with a flat cylinder grinding wheel that I have for additional support and stability.
