    What is it? An old motorized drill press? or a drill from dinosaur days that had a motor added to it later?

    Now that's just cool. You need to setup a water wheel and hook it up with leather belts...

    You're going to have fun restoring it, and using it afterwards. Make sure you cover all those gears they can catch on anything.

    Good haul Chuck but you will have to walk it everyday.!
    Best regards,

    It's a drill press. It was a flat belt driven drill press. when it was made there would have been a main drive shaft running through the shop. Most likely powered by a steam engine. Than a flat belt dropping from that main to the DP and all the other tools in the shop.
    The motor was added by who ever got it out of the factory it was in for the first part of it's life.
    It also could have been driven by an old flat belt tractor. Like an old farmall http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...ed=0CCgQ9QEwAg
