If one is looking for a heavy duty drill stand, here is another option which some people rate highly:

https://www.wabeco-remscheid.de/catalog/product/view/id/6806/s/bohrstaender-fraesstaender-bf1240-mit-spannvorrichtung/category/246/

It offers more possibilities than a drill press too.

I seem to recall that Wolfcraft once did something like that with an optional X-Y table available. Because of the 43mm shoulder which the German manufacturers adopted in the 1970s almost all post-1980 drills can be used in a drill press as well as some of the European die grinders, small routers (especially the Bosch POF50/52, 1608/1609 trimmers, small AEG, Kress, etc as well as others including the Trend T4, small Hitachi, B&D DN66, and more), etc turning a drill press into a milling machine/overhead router...... Pity is the OP's original B&D stand doesn't work that way

Stop it! Behave!

I want a CNC milling machine and a laser cutter. I've not justifiable use for them, but I can drool looking at them.

BTW I'm still sad enough to use an old Stanley-Bridges drill press complete with a 2-speed Stanley-Bridges drill from the 1960s....... As I keep saying, though, "It does the job"


Following on from the thread about vices, here's mine:
