The price tag said £0:50p, so I had it away.

Is that cast in weight on the gear wheel designed to help balance the weight of the turning handle? If so a nuce bit of thoughtful design, I'm guessing it would give a modicum if flywheel effect?
 
Looks like a Millers Falls 04 drill, so your choice of color for the gear wheel is more or less correct (may/may not be historically correct, but it's a MF color/colour): https://oldtoolheaven.com/millers-falls/hand_drills/drill1.htm and https://www.georgesbasement.com/mfno135typestudy/Drill606/No4D-606.htm
It is has all but small castings of SIF 1940. WD
It is a SIF, but the records show it may bea copy of a Millers, with no S/N it is hard to prove.
Not the first millers of a SIF that goes out of its way to confuse humans.

Itis yes.
 
Great job, there’s something very satisfying about taking rusty cast iron and making it look brand new. Now you’ll be able to keep the workshop going even in a power cut! :ROFLMAO:
