Default Sun Drill press ??

Got a lead on a used Sun drill press. It's a bench model with a 1/2 hp Marathon electric motor. Not sure how many speeds. But looks in good shape. Are these good drill presses???

Did a little research on the motors they use they are built in Wausau, Wisconsin. Been around since 1913. From what I read they make some nice motors. Which is the heart of the drill.
