I recently bough one (used obviously) and gave it a once over. I mainly wanted to use it as a lathe and disc sander. I however am very excited about the horizontal boring! The drill press not bad either, feels a bit wonky, I'm sure I'll get used to it. Looking forward to more tips from you.
Looks awesome! I have this exact model and gave it a good once over a while ago (minus the paint job). I would recommend checking the two tables for parallel very carefully before you start running expensive bits of wood over it. Mine had about 0.5 to 1 mm sag end-to-end which caused all sorts of problems. Cut up of pieces of beer cans works well to shim out the dovetail rails and get the in and out feed tables co-planar again. I hope you are lucky and don't have this issue!
