Comments:
This was a garage sale find. I have scoured the dirty paper to determine year, and am pretty sure it falls in the late '30's, early '40's vintage, although I can't find this particular model number. Shown as found, save for a small portion of the base that I couldn't resist cleaning up to see paint condition. This may be a cleanup and user as opposed to a complete restoration, as it spins quite freely, the paint seems in good condition (under the grime), and the grinder itself appears to be complete. I have not attempted to run it yet, as the power cord is horrific (original), but was assured by the PO that it does run. He was braver than I.

Update 1/2/12 Decided to cleanup and paint the beast. I replaced the nasty cord with a new grounded 3 prong. Runs like butter. I'll replace the original wheels.
