My wife and old man conspired to get me a birthday present

Picked it up today. It's staying at my folks for a while yet until I have room to bring it back.

I can't find a name on it, just the number 100. It is missing the leather  drive belt, probably eaten by mice. 

Once I cleaned the mouse nest out of the blower, everything seems to work. There is a slight hop in the big pulley, should be small enough that the leather belt can 'eat' it.

I think the cover may be a drain cover. 

Anybody have an idea of the rough age of this guy? I've found a few pictures just like it online, but with no info.

I think my wife and father did a pretty good job on this forge.
