Porter-Cable Syracuse 6" bench grinder, model 116.
1/4hp, 3450rpm, 115V, 3.6A, S/N 904909
Two-piece tool rests, mounted to the end bells.
Stamped steel guards.

Purchased at ReTool in Royal Oak Michigan on 12/1/2005.
It just ran too smoothly to pass up.

I'm thinking that this grinder may have been manufactured by Brown-Brockmeyer.
The body and base configurations look very similar to B-B grinders.

Per James Huston, this model was sold in the 1957-1959 time period (Thanks James!).

Traded to a fellow OWWMer, for a Craftsman grinder.
