Inspired by a question from Tested member Thomas Esson, Adam pulls back the curtain on a collaboration he did with the production team of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency back in 2016.

Here’s the story of how Adam came up with the design and how he pitched it to the makers of the show!

One of the most used tools in Adam’s shop is his Powermatic drill press, and he improves it today by mounting it on a rolling platform! It’s also time to switch back to his old drill press table, as the one he installed last year isn’t working as well as he had hoped. And if you recall from the last time he took the drill press apart, getting this machine on its side to operate on it is no simple feat to do alone!
