Purchased this grinder in December of 2018 off Craigslist for $250. Grinder was being sold for a guy's 86 year-old father who bought it and had it sitting in his garage, unused for about 28 years. Missing are the motor, motor pulley, drive belt(s), 1/2 of the rear belt guard, motor cover and perhaps the front guard. I found the missing 1/2 of the rear belt guard listed on Craigslist and now have it on order. Although obviously unused for quite some time, the unit looks to have been well lubricated and it still seems to operate smoothly. It is dirty, but rust is minimal. The serial number is: 108-3189. This seems to translate to a manufacture date of 1953. My plans are to find a motor and then refurbish the unit for use in my shop in Walcott, Iowa.
