I'm drawing a blank Chuck. Parts of it look familiar but other parts don't. The bottom end looks like it is meant to be driven with a brace. You can find antique tool collecting clubs by googling that. They might be able to help.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

After a quick dive into Google, it looks like it might what's called a chain drill. Not sure how it works, but seems it was designed to deliver more power in a hand drill for difficult work (metals, etc)
