A hand-powered post drill, precusor to electric drill presses or for use in areas where electricity is not available. As the handle is turned energy is transferred through gears to the revolving bit holder and momentum is maintained by the flywheel. The drill bit is advanced by the upper handwheel and the worm gear to which it is attached.
