Locking part of a formula with structured references

This may not be possible but it has bothered me for quite some time. I'm looking for a way to lock part of a formula with multiple structured references. I'm aware that when using structured referencing that filling or dragging will shift all of the references and that copying and pasting will not shift any of the references, but what about when we need both. For example...
=Table1[[#This Row],[Column 1]]+Table1[[#This Row],[Column 2]]

I'm hoping for a way to lock the reference to Column 1 but not to Column 2.
If i was to take my data out of a table a correct formula would be this.

What I'm looking for is something like this.
=$Table1[[#This Row],[Column 1]]+Table1[[#This Row],[Column 2]]

That way you could pick which references should change and which ones should not when dragging without losing the benefits of table references.
Thanks in advance!
