Mark 1 Drilling machine

I'm looking for advice for a friend who is considering a drill press. its a mark 1 drilling machine says it was made in Taiwan. Model #C114X.

Anybody have an opinion about this? Thank you, very much, guys.

Looks like it's in the same class as a Harbor Freight. I wouldn't pay more than $100. for it.

It's missing two features that's important in a woodworking shop. 1) quill lock and 2) depth stop. There are better drill presses for less money.

He ended up giving $100 for the drill press. ...Makes me feel pretty smug about the old craftsman I got for the same money a month ago.
