    Looks like it’s a Millers Falls breast drill. The word you’re seeing, scratched away, is “Mohawk”. Also on the label is written “Shelburne”, the town where Millers Falls was.

    This page doesn’t have much about it, and it might be a different drill from the same line, but it could give you enough information to flesh out your search:
