Spotted on CL for $25 (complete and working), but schedule would not allow me to pick up right away. I emailed PO and asked him to contact me if it didn't sell in the next couple of days and told him I would use this to help restore old woodworking machinery. He emailed back and said no one had contacted him so far and if someone was going to use it for that kind of work they deserved to have it. We picked a work day to meet during lunch and he drove half way to meet me. Extremely nice guy and was only selling this "ugly" grinder because he had a "mint" 70's version and didn't need two. Works for me. Unit is 1/4 HP and runs like a champ. My plan is to replace bearings and paint. Paint in picture looks more bright than it really is. Recipe is modified from the Cman recipe given to me by Dan Swartz. I lightened it a bit and added metallic.
