This is the one I made for my the old Atlas DP.  Disregard the battery in the back that is to operate the HF trailer hitch jack to raise and lower the table.          

I think I got this one out of Wood magazine but might have been Shopsmith. It has slots for hold downs on top and on the side (for drilling long stock on endgrain) . It has served me well . The fence

Here is my Woodsmith drill press table. It's 3/4" BB ply for the base and doubled for the fence. A piece of hardboard has been glued on. It provides a space for the insert and, for the fence clamps. T

Probably similar to other plans you've seen already; I had planned to build this first one until I bought the H-F.

I like the first one better.  Anyone else try having the replaceable insert set at 45 degrees and slide in and out, no bolts this way and easy to replace?  issues with this?  Over engineering on my thinking?  Oh I meant guessing..:Laughing:

Not over engineering at all. The woodsmith plans call for it.

The whole plate between both t channels?

Not in the shop now, but IIRC, its only 3" or 4" wide. The edges of the butting table parts are beveled @ 45, as are both sides of the replaceable insert. I'll post a picture later today.
