It is made out of cast iron. It is part of an old hand cranked, self feeding 'press drill'. Part of the self feeding arm was broken. Since I don't have a press drill and need one I thought that I'd put on a motor, modern chuck, modify the gears and bearings (doesn’t have any) make it look nice and (wait for it…..) SHINY! Then use it. My Grandfather used to use it, seems a shame to change it, but all it's been doing is gathering dust in a corner of the shed. Oddly enough my Grandfather in law just gave me another one - different model though. He used to use it , however it doesn’t have a flywheel, but the height adjustment wheel on the top is very big and it’s elliptical self feeding system is still intact.
