Back-Geared, Upright Drilling Machine, 1926

The Starrett Book for Motor Machinists and Auto Repair Men.  Athol, Mass.:  The L.S. Starrett Co., 1926.
These old line drawings are beautiful.

Made by the Aurora Tool Works of Aurora, Indiana, a short-lived firm (approximately 1898-1906).

The tiny script under the base reads "Courtesy of Niles-Bement Pond Co."  This was a huge machine tool manufacturer at one time which, among other acquisitions, bought Pratt & Whitney in 1901.
