Full disclosure – I’m not interested in purchasing. I have too many toys now! But here are some details as I could make out from the single photo:

This is often times called a “breast drill” or “egg beater drill”.

The “egg beater” part may or may not be obvious, depending on ones age. Looks and operates similar to the small hand-held kitchen tool for mechanically beating eggs. Duh.

The “breast drill” part comes from the breast plate so you can lean into the work and put some force behind the drill. These are meant for heavier use than the types with just a simple wooden handle at the end (note this one has a handle parallel to the crank for the off-hand and you push the drill with your body).

From the photo, I can’t tell much about the model but it does not look to have the multiple-speeds that make some more desirable. Could be wrong, needs better photos to sell well.

For a dual speed model in good shape with a large chuck (can’t tell the chuck capacity, 1/4” maybe?) $25 is about right. For a single speed model you are still high. Especially if it needs cleaning etc. to run smoothly.

I think $25 is a fair price.

Can you post additional pictures? Is there a manufactures mark? Does it work? What size bit does it hold, you did not include any information.
