I would start looking for older Delta and Powermatic, especially pre 1970. Both manufacturers built high quality industrial machines that are still running stong. Parts are still available and easily obtained. Machines prices are usually good and with a little elbow grease will last another 50-70 years. The NEWEST tool in my shop is a ‘77 Powermatic drill press. I highly recommend Old Woodworking Machines, but I am a different breed. I like things made in the USA.
