thanks for posting this,
I,m sure several members will take advantage of the sales and items.
Ive had several similar desk top mount drill presses in the past,in the shop,
and they come in very handy for light work that represents the vast majority of the stuff most of use use a drill press for most of the time.
keep in mind a drill press is 1000% more useful if you have a decent precision drill press vise firmly bolted to the drill table
every drill press need an adjustable vise, vises like this, can be precision made but are frequently cheap junk.
I,d also suggest you think thru your intended use for a drill press, as theres huge differences in the capability's
having ANY drill press with a vise generally is a big improvement over a hand held drill

the problem with tools is that as the quality and capability goes up so does the price, but unfortunately usually in orders of magnitude

heres what appears to be a rather interesting tool,, its a flex cable with camera lens that plugs into a lap top usb port for under $20...yeah! $20 not a mis-print at that price, I'm half thinking it might be a scam, but I doubt it, but the link shows (175 sold) and (5) available ?)

for a little more grumpy you could have gotten a digital inspection tool with a lcd screen that can zoom and flip the image to give you better perspective...

true! but when I bought my tool it was then "STATE OF THE ART"and at the price a great bargain,
those newer tools were either not available or at the time cost 4-5 times that much, as I'm sure your aware prices on some types of electronics and related tools have dropped as tech has improved

if you know the part number or description of the mill in question, or might recognize it in a picture, you might look it up
don,t forget after you buy the mill the accessory's like fluid pumps collets, cutters and end mills , vises etc can very easily add $2K-5K to a mill before your up and functional,
but once you have a mill and a decent welder you can fabricate endless projects and custom make brackets modify parts and basically become an advance hot rodder thats no longer dependent on over the counter parts and what others may sell you, and while the price of the tools is high, its peanuts compared to what you save in machine shop charges once you learn how to use the tools because easily 30%-35% of most engine builds is consumed in machine shop labor cost, and you can easily avoid at least 20%-40% of that with what is basically minimal skill machine work, you do yourself
