    Old DML drill.

    This was my grandad's blacksmith's DML drill. When I remember him using it it was hand powered by a handle on the side and had a 4 foot dia flywheel on top. I renovated it with a gearbox off a van, pulleys and belts and electric motor. It will drill a 2,1/2" dia hole in mild steel.
