I have had this tool for more than 45 years. I had used it for a buffing arbor with 6" wheels. It worked well for that because of the small size of the pedastal. It has bronze bushings and, as seen in the pictures, there are two oil holes (One plug is missing) on the top of the bushings. One end of the shaft is longer and has more threads which must have been for use of a wider wheel. I have not done anything with this other than clean it up. It is painted a dark grey similar to an older Craftsman color. It may be one of their machines, but with absolutely no identification on it anywhere, it's hard to tell.

Any ideas?

It measures 7 1/2" high, the shaft is 1/2"d x 7 1/2" long and the base measures 4 1/4" front to back and 3 3/4" wide. The 2" pulley appears to be a solid steel homemade replacement.

Update: Another OWWM member has one of these and it's a Craftsman. I checked and it looks to be of 1948 vintage or earlier.

(Admin BAK, 7/13/2015: Revised specs. Note: a previous owner has cut a slot in the pulley hood area.)
