Wooden device that Native Woodland Indians once used to drill holes and start fires. It is a made based on original designs but has no stone drill bit so it is safe to use.
Kids can really wind it up and let it pump, first down and then let it go back up on its own as the little wooden cross bar winds its way up and down the wooden shaft. It has a modestly sharp tip so use it with supervision. It won't drill holes into anything but it could scratch a tabletop. It comes complete and has directions for use.
History of this device dates back several thousand years and was the modified version of hand rubbing a wooden shaft hard enough into a wooden trough to start fires. By adding the spindle whorl, the mobile cross bar connected to the shaft with twine, it freed the person drilling or starting a fire from a lot of hours of frustration since the simple action of letting the drill go up and down turns the shaft back and forth to get the job done. Size of the drill is about 11" tall and 9" wide.
