Here's a little steampunk item from my collection: It's called a POST DRILL. Back in the days before electrification, one would mount this on a post that holds up the barn or shop building, and hand crank your drilling jobs. I just took this down from out in my shop building, I have been dragging it around for 20 years. It's in the way. I'd like to trade it for something way-groovy. Leave me a note if it rings your bell.

9 September - decided to keep this one. I have a smaller one and onery old busted knuckles gets dibs on that one. This thing is just too cool. When we sell this place and are ready to move to New Zealand, THEN I will sell it if it hasn't been incorporated into an art piece...
