Ken from Ontario has it right.
The only way to make sure the table is perpendicular to the quill is with an indicator “sweep” as shown in the youtube video.
Problem is woodworking drill presses are almost impossible to adjust the table. You can adjust from left to right (tweaking) but in most cases there is no front to back angle adjustment.
Rick M. was correct in utilizing a mill, as it has adjustments left to right, as well as front to back, and is much more robust.
