I have no idea where this thing has been. A friend of mine gave it to me to get it out of his garage. The drill has a patent dated 1917.

The stand is a #1 bench drill stand made for 1/2, 9/16/ and 5/8 drills.

The drill runs at 450 rpm and is in fair shape for it's age . The handle was broken and the switch was in rough shape so I re-made the switching system . This should be an improvement and the D handle is not on the drill and it will never be removed from the stand unless I decide to replace it with my 1/2" Clark.
