    Here is another whats-it

    I know what it is. Lets see some guesses from those that don't know first just for fun. After about 12 guesses then those that do know jump on in there.

    It attaches to a brace and there is a chuck for some type of boring bit. My initial thought was an auger and may still be that but the chain is throwing me. It is obviously there to allow drilling into irregular shaped objects. Possibly for drilling into pipe in which case one wouldnt use an auger but a bit suitable for the material being drilled....

    Just a guess but I's say it's a drill press for a brace and bit. More than likely to drill holes in posts/poles or beams...might even let you drill steel with a brace..

    Can't do a Youtube its stored away with the rest of my tools.

    It is used with a brace. the chain goes around the post to help hold it in place as you bore. The knob it a preset for depth.

    Rich. I don't think YOU want to be the one to supply the doll. A Good condition Kewpi doll is About $300.00 -$400.00 U.S.
