    Default Wards post drill and tabletop camelback drill press

    I know the post drill is a Montgomery Wards but the tabletop camelback has no markings. Any idea of the manufacturer?

    The green electric motor to the rear of the post drill head is off a residential heating coal stoker. The motor has the square housing with the "bump" on the front end bell that has an on/off switch. That on/off switch was worked by the stoker mechanism. The green paint job may mean the motor is off an old "Iron Fireman" coal stoker.



    Can't help with any ID on the little bench drill press, though.

    Haha, I'm at a loss, at least my Canedy-Otto has markings.

    There seem to have been a huge number of generic small drill presses made. I have no idea who made one that I have, but it is more a curiosity issue than anything important, I would be no smarter if I was told it was made by the W.J. Thomason Co. in Brooklyn..
