There are basically three types of guys buying DPs:
1. Guys who occasionally want a hole in a workpiece. Don't care who made it, don't care what it looks like, just git 'er done cheap. They usually end up Chicom.
2. Guys who love quality machines and the look and feel of when America had some guts and glory. They buy Craftsman, Delta, Rockwell, Powermatic, Boice-Crane, Atlas, Clausing, Avey, and the like, at least 25 years old, and 50 is better yet.
3. Guys who want a precise hole, to three decimal places. They start out with a Chicom mill/drill, realize the limitations and usually end up with a real mill.
