Vintage Hand Powered Drill Press, #1 Acme, Post Drill, Circa Late 1800 For Sale

Vintage Hand Powered Drill Press, #1 Acme, Post Drill, Circa Late 1800

How did farmers and mechanics perform drilling tasks in iron and steel during the early industrial era - before electrical power was common in every home and business? They used a hand-cranked drill press like this post drill. No electric motor, no belt power, the drill is hand powered by turning the hand crank. The post drill is supplied with a self-feed mechanism that automatically advances the drill bit into the work while the drill is turning.

The post drill is capable of drilling anything that can be drilled by a modern drill press of equivalent size. Post drills were smalland easily crated and shipped to any location. The new owner assembled the post drill, mounted it to a wooden plank and/or bolted the drill assembly to a post or column in the workshop or barn.

This antique drill is working condition, but needs clean up and lubrication to be fully functional. It was believed to be used by a wagon wheel maker. The only broken part is one wing nut on bottom platform, easily replaceable.
