Note: Please ignore rust and peeling paint.
I have only recently obtained and mounted this post drill. It
and the wall both need work!
The image to the right illustrates the overall post drill.
It is mounted on a board which is then mounted to the wall. This
gives clearance for the flywheel and crank handle.
This short looping QuickTime movie illustrates the
ratchet mechanism of the auto feeding feature of this post drill.
You may control the movie with the slider controls. It runs through
one full hand crank then repeats.
Here are close-ups of the mechanism.
This post drill has a swing over table.
