I'm not very familiar with this make or model of drill press. I would be interested in seeing what kind of speeds it has for routing and shaping. I assume it must have a high speed gearbox in order to do that?
A few years a go, back before I had a ½ inch router, I wanted to make some raised panel doors. I had the bit set from a Christmas Present but no ½ inch router to drive them. So I chucked them up in my standard drill press, made a special table, and used a gazillion feather boards and made a decent set of doors.
I would not do it again. The relatively slow speed of my bit caused a lot of chatter, a slower-then-the-Donner-Party feed rate, and nail biting and worry the whole time the cutter was engaged in the wood. It did form the raised panel quite nicely though.
As I said, I would be curious as to how fast this machine can turn in the routing and shaping mode?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
