Found this on CL after giving up chasing a DP-220 that was in far worse shape. This is a Delta "6+6" meaning it has six pulley speeds and a six inch quill travel. It also features the "universal feed." The hand feed can be position at any clock position and the length of the rod can be moved in or out. The quill is 2" in diameter and overall its a fairly beefy press. This particular press is badged as a 15-660 which makes it likely it was a "special order" in terms of the customer, most likely it went to a school. I found this in nearly perfect (for it's age) and plug and play condition. I've painted it to match my other Delta machines and changed out the bearings. The old Jacobs chuck ended up being destroyed so I have a brand new Jacobs 33-34C chuck installed.
