12" Pedestal grinder made by Cincinnati Electrical Tool Inc.

I bought this machine from Eric Tuck a while back. I thas been rat-holed for a while since I had no place to put it and no way to run it until now. All parts except for the motor were cleaned up in the Electrolysis tank. There was a fine collection of mouse skeletons located in the bottom of the pedestal. It is painted with Rustoleum Hammered Gray.

The badge is in really rough shape and still needs attention.

The specs are:
Model 104
12" x 2" wheel capacity
1-1/4" arbor
1725 RPM
2 HP
3 Phase
Curb weight, 400+ pounds

It is lacking in the tool rest department. The ones that came with it are some pretty crude shop made units. They worked better with the very small diameter worn down wheels that came with it. The pedestal has been modified for some type of grinding jig apparently.

The shop across the hall from me has the big brother, a 14" x 3" model.

The company is still in business producing grinders that are very similar.
