Comments:
I bought this DP-220 floor model originally for the floor base and column to put it under my Delta DP-225 last year. Normally I didn't like the little DP-220s, but after working on it to restore it for selling, I got to like it later. Now I realized why this little drill press is so popular. I decided to keep it for metal drillings. The floor base of the DP-220 is under the DP-225 and the bench base of the DP-225 is under the DP-220.
