Comments:
I spotted this post drill at the Matakohe Kauri Museum, in Northland, North Island, New Zealand (January, 2016).

It was hard to photograph the RH side, due to it's location, but I was able to confirm that it's a Canadian Blower & Forge product (not Buffalo Forge) and I'm certain that it's a model No.61 or 61R. I don't think the table is original. There appears to be a repair to the main casting.

Comments: The best shot I could get of the RH side. "Kitchener" indicates it was made by Canadian Blower & Forge after 1916.
