drill press questions!

Does anyone have any tips or recamendations on buying a drill press, I am thinking about buying an el cheapo $100 one to drill aluminum and wood.

Also is it possible to modify drill press or convert one into a small metal lathe?

I'm thinking about biulding a small hobby steam engine and I can make rough shapes out of cast alumunum but can I use a drill press to bore out a large hole (2" to 4") in a block of amuminum, also can I use the drill press to smooth out a cast alumunum cylender to fit in the clyender?
