I use my floor stand drill press a lot. It’s nothing special, a friend gave it to me. However, having said that…

If I had to get along with just my Central Machinery mini-mill for drill press operations, I could, and there are a lot of router-ish things that I can do quickly and easily on the mill. With the mill, one young visitor to my shop easily milled out a nice little box for his mom. Sliding dovetails and many small grooves are faster and easier to set up on the mill than the router table. The mill is nice and quiet, and controlled enough that small guests that I’d never let near a router can do lots of operations.
