Hey, dwcon; welcome! Can we call you N/a? Just kidding, but it'd be great if you could put some info like your first name and area you're posting from into your profile. This first post will dissapear into the archives but the profile is always up there on the left when you make a comment.

In a machine shop, the drill press base would be bolted to the concrete floor, eliminating the tipping issue. Most of us want the flexibility of being able to move our floor model DPs if we need to, hence the concern for the tipping risk from our unmounted machines. Like the others have mentioned, a wiiiiide base and lots of weight down there. I think most of us have castors (locking!) but the truth be known, they can make the tipping more risky.
