Unknown Small Round Belt Drill Press

Joe Huld

I got this drill press exactly as it appears here, it is missing at least the quill pulley and may once have had a counter shaft with a clutch. It is a small DP standing only 21 inches high with a table only 4 inches in diameter and a 6 inch diameter base. The remaining pulley says that it was originally driven by a round leather belt. There are no markings of any kind except for a 1923 patent date on the chuck which I've tracked down but unfortunately it did not lead to further information. I plan to make a new quill pulley and will either use a small jewelers lathe counter shaft I have or a foot power round belt drive that I think also drove a small jewelers lathe.
I'd appreciate any info re who made this and when as well as any thoughts on restoration.
