Looks like it was made with about 2" steel pipe fittings. That is an interesting concept. It could be made so that the head would swivel like a Bridgeport. Not a bad deal for $200.

I used to have a book from Popular Mechanics that had plans for a lot of tools, drill presses band saws lathes and plenty of others using pipe fittings, car parts and other hardware store items. That drill press almost looks like one of them.
I spent many an hour just looking over those plans, never built any, but the designs were great.
