Almost looks like a disaster waiting to happen.
But it worked and the drill rod is perfectly lined up in the holes and spins freely.

Whoa. Suspiciously familiar brass bearings reamed to fit. Somebody's serious!

Nice work.

Every bit of this can be done without electricity.
You can weld with gas and run the lathe and drill press off of wind power or a water wheel.
Grinding can be done with foot power.
