Bench top mortiser as a drill press?

I just purchased a Jet bench top mortiser. I was wondering if you could also use it as a regular drill press.
Would this cause harm to my new machine?

Thank You,

Kris - My little $100 HF mortiser came with an extra chuck so that the mortiser could be converted to a DP. I have a 13" DP so I haven't tried it, and have no idea how well it'll work. No reason to think that your Jet can be used as one too.
I've been wondering about using my Bench Top Drill Press as a Mortiser.
