I just picked up this Walker-Turner Driver Line grinder... it seems to take a 5" wheel on the left and an 8" wheel on the right. It also looks like perhaps a drill bit alignment component.


The casting number in the center part is G 101. The parts on around the left wheel are marked G 102L and G103L.

The motor with it is a Sunlight 1/3hp. I suspect it may be original because the pulley is marked Driver Line.

I'd be interested to know any information about it... and how it's intended to be used.

I found a catalog page describing this grinder. It seems to be a mid 1930's unit. The right side is a cut-off unit (model G15) with the basic grinding wheel on the left.

Original color was green, but a prior owner ran amok with a can of red spray paint.
