We had drillpress like that in our shop many years ago. The top of the drill shank was tappered and the end of it looked like a big flat screw driver. We had a piece of wood and tapped the end of the drill to set it into the tapped chuck. When done there was a tappered piece of flat steel (we called it a key) that there was a slot just over the top of the drill and you sliped the key in it and gave it rap and the drill dropped out of sleeve.

The tapered shank sounds like the Morse taper we have today. I haven't a clue what kind of chuck is on that drill press. Or if it is even called a chuck. Looks like every drill big or small would have to have the same size shank with a flat spot, or different Morse taper sizes, if they had Morse taper back in 1855.

They made an adapter that small drills would fit in . The small drills looked like the big drills and you used the adapter to make them work.We used ours mainly for drilling large holes. I think I may have a couple of these drills yet but don't have the drill press anymore.

The lathe that you have pictured does not have a chuck on it but has a faceplate and that is threaded to the head of lathe.

Did they have chucks back in 1865? Or was everything done off a face plate? I would think it would be kind of hard to fasten a piece of round to a face plate.

If that faceplate is threaded to head you should be able to take it off and find a chuck that fits those threads.
