I purchased this bench grinder from my 92 year old neighbor's estate sale. Since it runs great, I took it out to the driveway and wiped it down with a lacquer thinner soaked rag, then gave it a Krylon rebuild. I replaced the cracked safety glass with plexiglass and ordered up two new grinding wheels. I hope it runs well for another sixty years.
