Hi my dad bought a new drill press and he said he didn't think you could get mortising attachments, I found out that some drill presses can have them. I wanted to know if my dad's drill press will work with any mortising attachments so I can buy him one for his birthday.

Here are the Specs:

Chuck Travel 60mm
Collar Size 55mm

Max Chuck To Base 340mm
Max Chuck To Table 230mm
Model AH1302DP
Morse Taper No
Nett Weight 28kg
Overall L X W X H 500 x 280 x 710mm
Power 250W (230V 1ph)

And here is the exact drill (I don't have permissions to link) Axeminster AH1302DP

If you know any attachments that work it would be even better!

In terms of birthday/Christmas presents that are drill-related, how about:
a machine vice ("drill press vice"),
a set of Forstner bits (the Axminster ones have a nice wooden case!),
a magnetic-base work-light (really good for a drill press!),
sanding drums (the Carroll sanding drums are way better, but I can't find a URL - they may be no longer with us :-( )
or even:
