Belt Driven Post Drill

Lancaster Blower and Forge Co. No. 200 lineshaft driven post drill, with 1904 and 1910 patent dates. 8" clearance allows drilling to center of 16" circle. The 14" flywheel with belt groove can be driven from a lineshaft or motor with a modern v-belt. An electric motor, belt and belt tensioner had been fitted to the drill and will be included, if desired. A hand crank is not provided. The patented ratcheting lever provides a powerful manual feed and can be disengaged when the power feed is preferred. Turning a hand wheel about 20 degrees engages and disengages the power feed and allows instant return when the power feed is used. The 1/2" round chuck is fitted with a Jacobs chuck for using any size smaller round shank bits. The adjustable table is 11 1/2" in diameter. This is a single speed power drill, in good working order.

The right side view. A geared hand crank is not included. You must have some sort of power source or use the electric motor mentioned below.

The patented power feed engaging mechanism. Giving the lower wheel a partial turn engages and disengages the half nuts of the power feed. When released, the quill instantly rises to the top of its travel via a strong return spring.

The patented ratcheting manual feed lever. For those who prefer drilling by brute force rather than sharpening drill bits, this lever will do it.
