This diminutive Bench Grinder has a story. Beside the fact that it uses dual 4 Inch Wheels at a rotation of 3400 rpm’s supplied by a Lilliputian of a 2amp motor, it runs almost as good today as it did new over 40 years ago.

Now…the rest of the story. I have owned this machine since 1966. Stored most of the time but on the bench now for a quick re-store. This Bench Grinder was given to me by my father in 1966 when I use to cut the neighbors lawns for $2.00, The idea was that I would learn at a youthful age about machines while attempting to sharpen my own lawn mower blade.
