I'm a tool slut. Just to be clear. But I'm also on a homebuilt airplane forum and in 2017 we seen to be in the assembled airplane era not the built era. So I feel, given the demographics of today modern assembler, a good ole drill press is ideal. I also do not feel, based on my experience, a mill should be purchased instead of a drill press. I struggle with that thought process and money has nothing to do with it. I say buy both if machining is three road you want to go down. I will stand my ground on the fact that a drill press is cheaper. The theory of selling later doesn't really make sense. I could sell a mill, I'd never sell a drill press. But that's me. I have more tools than Carter has liver pills. Many don't get used, but when they do I'm always glad I have them. The original topic for this thread assumes the buyer doesn't already own a drill press. Think about that for a while. A guy who doesn't own a drill press buying a mill instead? Start with the drill press and see how it goes. Also. I don't like wood dust on a mill or lathe. A drill press is mandatory in my opinion.
