Comments:
I found these grinders at a local resale shop so cheap, I bought them just to have laying around. Only one piece says Dunlap and the taller unit looks like an older Craftsman grinder, so I'm in the dark as to when these were manufactured. I also have no clue on the double pulley piece that came with the others; if I had to guess, I would say it was to turn a belt 90 degrees, the way really old Delta drill presses were set up. I don't really collect anything but Delta and Porter Cable, but some things are too good to pass up.

(Admin-BAK, 9/12/2016: Added model numbers and date. These Sears Dunlap blue finish polishing heads are offered around 1940-1945. The idler assembly on the right is a twisted belt motor mule drive for a Sears/Atlas 11¾ drill press.)
