I can't directly answer about the 5 speed as I have the heavy duty benchtop 16 speed. It was a good purchase for me and have 'pushed' the dickens out of it, including some heavy steel drilling today. I've had it probably 15 years with no real problems. While there are some minor differences, this HF/Central Machinery DP has been sold under several names including Delta.
One problem that I did have - the chuck had significant runout(.060 plus) and was replaced with a JET brand which has none. These are #2 Morse Taper installed chucks, so an easy change out These DP will crack the table height adjuster if you overtighten.
I strongly suggest something bigger then the 5 speed as well as one that has a key type chuck - it's amazing how fast you discover a small DP just wont do the job
