Black & Decker Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
Wood Working Machinery
110 volt direct current bench grinder
Date of Manufacturer:
3/7/2005 12:00:00 AM
Pulled out of a pile of scrap motors and copper left by a ninety year old technician. It is not badged with a model number, just the voltage and amperage draw (damaged part of the plate) Odd for its time, it has a badge on the back that tells how to contact the company in three languages. I wouldn't be surprised if it dated back to the thirties. Note that this is 110 volts D.C., direct current--just like a stack of batteries. I have yet to get a beefy rectifier and see if it spins.
