This is the JDP-20VS Jet drill press. A 20" metal working drill press. I'm going to go look at a "very lightly used" one. It's listed for 1/4 of retail. It retails on Amazon for $2900. Specs:

I've been looking for a big beefy 20" DP for a variety of uses. I had been looking for a used Clausing or PM1200. I know this is not a PM1200, but was wondering if any of you have used or have any feedback on the Jet. Since it's a metal working tool rather than a woodworking tool, my assumption is that it will be better made to tighter tolerances, but I don't know if the Jet metal working tools are well made or not.
Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
