As the label shows, this grinder was "made for" Mall Tool Company. I haven't figured out who the true manufacturer was yet.

The grinder is nice and heavy for a 6" machine, all cast iron construction. It's missing a few parts (the end cap on the right wheel guard, eye shields), and it will need bearings, but this should clean up well and have another generation or two worth of use in it.
