millers falls drill press

Chad and I stopped past an antique store on Saturday. We came across the piece you see above and Chad offered the store owner 5 bucks for the piece. It was broken and had been repaired in a few places but we weren't sure what it was, but we assumed it was a drill of some kind. I took a few pics of Chad's find and then later that night I started looking for something similar on the interweb. I finally tracked down a Millers Falls catalog from 1905 that had the drill listed. I had to text Chad and let him know that he paid $1 more than it's retail price. I also loved some of the other tools in the catalog. The anvil vise drill press is particularly interesting.
