Ok, now I understand your question
The table is indeed solid, no sideshake noticeable for me. As a drill press it is quite ok since forces are only exerted in the axis of the lathe bed. The fact that one can use ER-11 collets for the drills adds of course to the precision.
The weakness is the cross slide for the lathe which is not as rigid as I would like it to be, especially since this is the only way to attach the toolpost.
