If you have information to add to this entry, please contact the Site Historian.

The company was founded in 1910. This maker of abrasive machines is still active, but no longer makes machines for woodworking.

In about 1917 the Syracuse Sander Manufacturing Co. developed a line of stationary sanding machines. The company was sold to Porter-Cable in 1922. The stationary sander line was sold to Engelberg and then to Sundstrand and then to Acme. Dates for these changes are not known. Please contact us if you have any information!

Acme still provides some support for old Porter-Cable stationary belt grinders (and, presumably, the other brands mentioned above). Visit the Acme website for contact information.

  • Most of our research on this and related companies is courtesy Dave Potts.
  • We have seen quite a few Acme machines on the used market. A study of the various Syracuse, Porter-Cable, Engelberg, Sundstrand, and Acme sanders would probably provide confirmation of the relationship between these companies.
