I bought this particular unit this past summer at a small antique store in PEI and everything appears intact. It is the first one that I have seen that is embossed "Blower and Forge Co. Berlin ONT". On the opposite side the information is the same except there wasn't enough room for the complete word Berlin (then N is missing). The Model # on both sides appear to be missing but once I started cleaning off the years of crud it exposes 151. If I was a guessing man I would say it was ground off at the factory. I also read on another post that both the American made and its Canadian made models are very similar except the Buffalo models have 5 spokes in the flywheel and the Canadian Model has four. Mine has the 5 spokes. Most of the ones I've seen say Kitchener, ONT so I know this one is pre 1915 when the city of Berlin was changed to Kitchener. Is there anyone out there that may be able to shed some light on this particular drill? Thanks
