What-Is-It?

October 2009 Mystery Tool A
A. Drill frame or post drill. The term “post drill” is used for this type of drill press because the drill is attached to a vertical structural member (the “post”) in a shop. Floor model drill presses are freestanding and bench drill presses are attached to a bench. See patent 588,712 for a similar piece (next image).
