Go for it. The new one is made off shore- you would be much better
off with an older model.
Or look at a Powermatic Variable speed. That is what I wish I had

You may consider the new Delta X5 drill press. It's a little bit more
expensive but I got the free router and sold it back brand new (I have
3 already) so the drill press comes down quite a bit cheaper.
Actually, I had it during a promotion where the price was already
reduced... All in all, it came about 20% more than the 17-965C. Well
worth it for the variable speed only.
The great advantage are the variable speed and the 6" quill stroke.
Great for deep mortises.
