I've seen one years ago. Think it was a rivet setter for leather or canvas.

Did it have a hole for a knob on the top piese that looks like a handle?
does the spindle( small round part) have a half inch hone and a set screw?

If yes to both questions it is a drill press

It is a hand operated drill press. Especially usefull for drilling out studes that are broken off.Can be clamped down and the bit can be forced iinto the pice you are drilling.You are missing the chuck and some other hardware to hold it down.

I go with Scott-sd and think it is a leather hole punch and a riveter. For a drill something on it would have to turn the bit. And in the pictures I don't find that. Len

Gary --

That"s a "Cole Drill", a brand name that is also used as a generic name for that type of manually-operated drill press. The hand crank turns the drill, while the hex-headed feed screw -- which is to be turned with the operator"s other hand -- forces the turning drill into the workpiece.

The Cole Drill was designed to use drills (aka drill bits) with half-inch diameter cylindrical shanks; later models included a Jacobs chuck with a half-inch shank to fit drills having shanks of the same diameter as the hole to be drilled.

Searching the internet for "Cole Drill" will turn up the factory"s instruction sheets and a number of websites showing a Cole Drill in use.

The Cole Drill, which was being manufactured until just a few years ago, is a wonderful tool for in-situ drilling of broken bolts and on-site / in-field use.

John

For those that said Drill Press or Cole Drill you are correct. It is a Cole Tool Mfg No. 7. And thanks for the explanation of it's use. I was a bit unsure what it was used for.

I have 2: One like the picture, with handle, no chuck, and a similar one that appears to be part of a wall mounted drill press, but the 'table' or whatever the bottom was is missing, with an improvised board there.

Does anyone have a picture of one of these as a complete drill press? I would like to see what it looked like.

Thanks!
Kelvin.
