Response to can a drill press be used
for milling may be ok as long as it is straight down force. Its the side-to-side stuff that the drill press can't handle very well. Bearings are usually not set up for it. Lower end drill presses may not be set up to handle even straight down pressure, as Stan mentioned. Some pistons are pretty hard, maybe require carbide to make a dent.
My thots, anyway, on the subject.
Good luck, Jon
