I concur with MikeG and would add Meddings to the list if looking second hand.

If you are set on new a friend of mine who is more into engineering than woodworking bought one made by Chester Machine Tools and is very happy with it. They sell direct as well as via engineering machinery suppliers.

Edit - he also said that if you look at their stuff on eBay but don’t buy the next day they send a 5% discount offer.

If you want one for woodworking only then I would suggest that you look at radial arm pillar drills from the likes of Sip Axminster ior Sealey. They are not heavy duty engineering machines but for woodworking only they are the best option in my opinion.
