I have an old Sullivan jack leg in my collection. I haven't been able to find much info on it or the company. About the only info I have is that it came from a gold mine that went under in the 20's so that gives me an approx. age. Anyone here have any info on this piece or ever heard of the company?

Can you post a picture ? We have a full catalog on drills and might be able to match it up.

It'll be awhile before I can post a pic. I have the drill disassembled at the moment. As soon as I get it back together and functioning, ill post pics of the whole process
