Aquired from Wixom, MI, along with a 'box 'o parts' of scrollsaws, etc. PO indicated that his relatives had obtained these from the Willow Run automotive plant, and were used during WWII for building airplanes. Whether or not this is true, the grinder was in parts when I received it, but appears to be all there, wheel flanges, switch, etc. I have only one tool rest, and not sure if i can find a donor part to have cast, or fabricate one to work.

Based on posts here, this should be a great, quiet grinder. This grinder is included in a 1947 catalog.
