Default Drilling big holes by hand

I have an old hand drill that will drill 1" holes in 1/2" steel with relative ease. Sharp bit of course. With a standard masonry carbide bit a leaf spring can be drilled. The slow speed and high down pressure (The big nut is the down feed) Makes it very efficient. They come with forged bottom end, but mine was lost. I made the base.
