Seems a large expense for something easy to do by hand.

I do not see the need for the expense, but my 10 inch drill press has a pretty good depth stop/gauge on it that is a solid stop, no flexing. It is a Skil made in Taiwan, I never buy made in China if I can help it, especially power tools. It is a matter of conscious more than quality, but quality too. I do not want to support possible slave labor nor slave wages.
Anyway my depth stop is on the handle where it joins the press and it spins around. It has centimeters and 1/2 inch increments on it. I can set it at zero anywhere and then adjust using the centimeter gauge and if I need precision I use spacers, but I can get pretty close just using the stop.
