Instead of a drill press, I got a combination drilling & tapping machine. It’s very convenient. It’s great for tapping holes in aluminum, though you really have to be careful when tapping steel. I once had to get two taps burnt out of the same piece! The good news is that it’s only about $10 to get a tap burnt out and took about half an hour. Still, lesson learned.
