TURN OF THE CENTURY
There is a Sullivan tag on this.

We believe it was a portable drill but what is interesting is that it was flat belt operated and if you take a close look there is a capstan mounted on the opposite side.

This was also used to either pull itself around or something eles.

It was used underground since it was equipped with a roof locking device.

VERY INTERESTING PIECE OF MINING EQUIPMENT.
Utilized in the iron mine area in New England

Well we found it in our archives iron miners

The same drill (Sullivan) got bought out in latter years by Joy Mfg.

The pictures below are from a Joy #7 surface diamond core drill.
