This heavy-duty 16-1/2-inch drill press from Delta will do the job.
The 3/4-horsepower motor that can be wired for either 115 or 230 volts.
It gives you an deep plunge length of 4-7/8 inches.
Chuck holds up to a 5/8-inch-diameter bit.
Solid cast-iron construction and a 3-1/8-inch column
The table rotates, 45 degrees each way for drilling angles.
On of my favorite features is the depth stop. Instead of screwing it up and down the shaft it has
a quick release button to dis-engage it from the threads to quickly move it.
Belt charts under the top, Delta uses a wide, clearly legible chart to explain how to configure
the belts for each of 16 speeds (215 to 2,720 rpm).
All in all it’s a great drill press. I got mine used but like new.
