I believe it is missing the proper handle and I’m sure that’s where the name would have been.

From the single photo, it looks similar to a hand drill I have. Mine also has absolutely no markings on it whatsoever. The crank handle is knob shaped like the side handle and will work itself loose with prolonged use. I have posted a photo of it in the “Hand Drills Of Our Dreams” thread. Hopefully, someone will come up with an answer on the maker.

Pictures are cheap, maybe post a few more so we get a better look at it? Such as, a profile of the main wheel to see the pattern there. And maybe a close up of the knurling at the base of the handle.

Yup this thread needs more pitchers. The knurling pattern does seem reminiscent of North Brothers, but that’s not much to go on. The name could easily be under some of the grime.
