I love those old Delta/Rockwell drill presses. I bought a new Delta back in the 80's-90's, but it has no spindle lock like the old ones, & I don't like the depth stop as much as on the older ones.
I had a Delta 32" Radial drill press that had both of those features, but I sold it for lack of space when I got the new one. Now that I have more room, I keep watching ads & if an older one in decent shape comes up, I'll buy it, restore it if necessary, & use it.
My old Delta bandsaw was manufactured within months of when I was born (1946). It's holding up better than I am!
