Drill press question delta DP350

Been looking for a bench top drill press
A neighbor has a delta DP350 for $60. Thoughts on the unit? Any concerns or reasons to pass or solid unit for the money for occasional use??

Id rather save the money and put it towards a larger, floor standing unit myself, but if you dont want one that large for whatever reason, you could do a lot worse on price for that delta

I need cheaper hobby

Consider trying out and checking the unit before you put down your $. Hopefully your neighbor has the manual and any accessories (factory or home-made) that should be included with that drill press. Be safe.

Yea I'm not looking for a large unit as I don't think it's going to get that much use. Some minimal gun smith work here and there. And small wood working chores angled and controlled depth stuff. All stuff that could be done handheld but easier and more precise with a DP.
I looked into some of the jigs to mount up my cordless but for $30-$40 more I could get a used DP so that seemed like a no brainier
