It's better to buy a good, used press than a crap, new one.

Mine is a 3hp press, 8-speed, 3/4" chuck made by "King Machinery" in Compton CA.

I rescued it from the side of the road after Hurricane Ivan... there was a Delta Machine bandsaw and a turret lathe, too. You can see the water-line on the drill press post about four feet from the floor, but the head and platform were untouched. The lathe and band saw were junk, salt water had gotten in the works and rusted solid.
