Slots are for a drill press vice or anything else you may want to add yourself.

Yep. Imagine the pain if you didn’t have those slots. Sometimes I’ve had to bore the end of a long spindle and it’s handy to swing the drill press table out of the way and use the base instead.

The base can also serve at a secondary table for larger stock. JRsgarage’s photo shows a vice attached to the base, presumably for using the base as a table when the main table is swung out of the way.

You can also use to attach to a mobile base.
