Ahhh. A triple box brush drill by Baker of Bedford. Not dated but usually from the 1950's. A really nice find John.
Bakers also produced a two box version and two different styles of single box brush drills also. Their literature indicates each model had a different name.
An excellent addition to any collection--Steve
