All this little grinder needed was a good cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. This tool grinder has a very smooth running 3,450 rpm motor, and a 3M diamond wheel on it. There was no work light with it so I added one I had kicking around the shop. The water can was missing too, so I made one up from some 3" dia schedule 40 pipe and added a little copper plumbing. It was too low for me, so I made up a 6" riser to go between the pedistal and the pedistal base. I'm still looking for a mitre guage for it. May have to make one of those also.
