Comments:
Ebay purchase in March 2008 (included vintage 1930s ¼hp Westinghouse motor).

Craftsman/King-Seeley 6" x ¾" x ½" ball bearing, belt driven bench grinder.
Power-bronze finish, estimate DOB around 1960.
Wheel guards are adjustable fore and aft and removable.
Body: cast iron, p/n 25254-103
RH guard: cast iron, p/n 25255-103
LH guard: cast iron, p/n 25256-103
Tool rests: stamped steel one-piece
Shaft: steel, 5/8" dia with 1/2-20 threaded ends
Pulley: 2" x 5/8"
Ball bearings:
- no identification, double plastic removeable seals.
- odd size, OD 1-3/8”, ID 9/16”, W 7/16” (Update: Accurate determined them to be 1622 bearings.)
- I disassembled, flushed and repacked with high grade ball bearing grease from Accurate
- RH bearing is held into the body by two snap rings, the LH bearing floats in the bore.
- small spacer bushing between the RH bearing ID and inner wheel flange.
- wheel flanges and nuts must be installed to prevent LH bearing and shaft from falling out of body.
