I have always been opposed to using a tool in a way which it wasn’t designed for. A drill press is designed to drill holes with the loads applied vertically. The bearings for a DP are not designed for side loads and will eventually fail.

I have used the DP for sanding, but very sparingly. I bought a Wen OSS for $100 and it does what I need it for.
