Depot sells an extended warranty.

As drill presses are not made for the lateral pressure of milling, it might make sense to look into on of the warranties if you are going to be abusing it as a mini milling machine.

Some of the 1 HP harbor freight models seem like they would be durable enought for a few abuse sessions.

The real challenge is how true will a drill press be with a milling tool?

If you get wobble you could easily destroy your 80% lower.
