I have to give my standard comment, your shop is WAY to clean.
But other than that nice restoration.
I had an old Taiwanese bench top drill, used and abused it for years, one day the column broke off at the head, it was cast iron, thin but none the less cast. By the time I turned it down to fit back into the head it was to short for the machine shop so went to the cabinet shop. Replaced it with a Delta, one of their gold series or such. Pure junk. Cheap chuck, the belts slip, one of the handles stripped out, etc. Yours will be a far superior machine.
