My old drill press works fine. One thing not mentioned in the comments is find a drill press with good clamps. Ask whoever is selling it how to clamp stuff down. Most drill presses are made some dumb way that you wont get a c clamp to work with it. Also If you find a clamp that fits it make sure you buy at least 4. For example I was trying to drill new mounting holes for a sprocket. The clamp didn't fit correctly. The sprocket kept moving sideways every time i was drilling. Sometimes it flew right off the drill press.
