What Jesus said. I have a Delta drill press, bought originally for mostly wood working. I still use it a lot for simple things since it's easier to put a big piece on the flat table and move it around easier than the Bridgeport. BTW, there really isn't a "small" Bridgeport. I think the smallest is a 36" table. If you're going to go to the effort to get one, I like the larger table better.
