This machine as well as 20 or so other steam engines is on display at the Florida State Fair Grounds steam engine exhibit. im not sure on the info on the Drill Press or if this is the right manufacture but this DP is made by Sibley Machine & Foundry Corp. and the sold by R.S. Armstrong & Bro. Co. This DP is vary large, it stands around 8 foot and looks to waigh around 500lb if not more. it has also been converted from line shaft to an electric motor in its life. i can't read the badge on the motor but it looks to be around 5 H.P.

(Admin BAK-7/5/2012: This appears to be the "Heavy Pattern Stationary Head Drilling Machine". This design was built in 24", 26" and 28" sizes. Net weight is 1600-1700#. This drill is probably from the 1930s.)
