    so this is a curious little guy. I get the belt driven grinding wheel, but I'm having a hard time getting my head around what the utility is of a bench mounted drill. So the drill sits there and spins. then what? what am I missing?

    also, what slides onto the tapered shaft on the opposite end?

    An early or "do it yourself" lathe? Pretty cool either way!

    Just guesses...
    Perhaps the chuck is there for a quick change of drill fitting brush heads..?
    The tapered end looks threaded in the picture to me, perhaps a reamer of sorts or another method of attaching different grinding and buffing heads or bits..?

    Either way, it's cool to see others...

    The balance on the bench when yours would run might have been a battle with the custom attachments.

    i'd say lathe on both ends, one for metal and one for wood. it might have come with a set of centers for it, it would be a really nifty little set up to have on a bench

    edit : not home made, here's another https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-belt-driven-grinder-polisher-1830544188

    The taper is used to hold cloth or leather wheels. The drill chuck makes little sense since the bearings in the arbor are not thrust bearings.

    Here is a tool marked Heller Made in USA weighing 2lbs.
    I am not sure of its specific use...

    It's got to be some sort of puller, right? God I love mystery tools, gateway to learning something new.

    Likely that as much as my offhand conjecture- it’s Heller so it’s well-Made regardless. :thumbsup:

    I believe you are correct!
    Thank you. I just ran with Autobody panel tool and discovered several makers of this tool, this is one example of the Autobody Spoon.

    And the first image I found was this page here from the big ole internet...

    I bought this Wyoming red edge pick this morning.
    [​IMG]
    It cleaned up real nice! You can see a #7 to the left of the stamp on the pick. It's not pounds it must just be a #7 pick.

    I also got an old yankee screwdriver. Made prior to 1899. It's marked "Goodell Bro's". The company name changed to "Goodell-Pratt" in 1899. [​IMG]
    And a J.H Williams & co wrench. [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    What I can't figure out is why the number 33 is stamped into the wrench. It's 15/16" and 1" neither of which corresponds with metric. Also a small "c" under it. [​IMG]
    I love this old stuff!

    Unusual, alternating teeth pattern is the reason it followed me home. It is 2 millimeter thick.
    For the heck of it I just tried it on piece of dry branch: It eats wood like no tomorrow (It probably has never been used before).
