Drill Press

Old drill press with intricate gears

Just inside the door of the Blacksmith Shop in Glen Haven sits this drill from 1895. Once located at the North Manitou Island Life-Saving Service station, this drill was used for the station’s building and boat maintenance. Notice the housing assembly and use of gear engineering; the intricate mechanics of this artifact are high tech for the late 1800s.
