First off you need a jig.
You remove material first with a drill bit using the jig.
Then chuck up a end mill bit.
Go to youtube and search for 80 percent lower on a drill press

I would just grab an 80% and do the milling it's easier and a solid piece of metal will always be stronger than welded together metal pieces. I mean I used to be a welder myself and I still wouldn't feel comfortable doing that i believe
+1 I wouldn't do it, either. I'm also a TIG welder. And I certainly wouldn't use a MIG welder. Not the right tool, IMHO. And, if I read the description right, it says you still have to tap the buffer tube hole. I hear that is a very expensive tap. Many reasons not to do it. I'm not technically a machinist, but I would feel way more comfortable doing an 80% on a bridgeport. I wouldn't even bother with a drill press.

It's like a 1970 or so craftsman floor mount drill press yes it is variable speed.
You can still do it on a table mount press I might add
