I had a LARGE OLD half-inch drill (mfr unk.) which turned at 500 rpm and
wouldn't stall easily. Had chuck-held adapters for the handle of the
worm-gear tower winch, and for starting several small gasoline and diesel
engines, and put a dpdt switch on the kluge for reversing. The tower
moved at around 2 ips.
Not automatic, but kept the drill available for other uses.
