I was recently given this post drill and I'm trying to identify the manufacturer. The only marks on it are the number 2189 cast on the advance wheel and possibly an L on the mainframe. To give some idea of the size of this tool the hand wheel is 19 inches diameter.

The thread retaining the hand wheel appears to be 10 TPI 3/4" UNC. The chuck has a square tapered socket which is full of rust and scale, with a threaded hole through from one side to the other which appears to be a 1/4" UNF.

There are what appear to be remnants of blue paint on the frame.

All help appreciated.
