This is the HF # 38142 16 speed drill press I have.
Really a nice machine. Super for the price.
Presently going for $239. I got mine for $160 with member discount and 20% off coupon.
The Palmgren cross slide vise I got from Amazon for around $85.
Note: there are much cheaper cross slide vises out there, but I wanted adjustble gibs and precision.

I would love to have the big Delta with the 6” quill, but simply did not have the money.
That machine is ~$900.
I’ll be watching Craigs List for one though. I’d still like to have the big guy.
Delta also has a 16” or 17” DP with a tilting table and 4-1/2” quill for around $500.
That would be a good machine as well, I think.
