There has been some talk of tapping lately, this is what I made a few years ago and I really like it. The only machine I had at the time was a lathe (no mill) which dictated the size of the table which is about 10" diagonally. Built with pipe fittings and steel blocks welded together. At the time of the pictures there is only one handle on it, I was waiting for another piece of stainless to show up.

Mighty fine piece of tooling in my opinion!

I've been thinking about making one for quite a while but not nearly that big. Something for up to 10-32.
