Hi, this isn't antique, I would just like to know what this grinder is used for.


The main shaft doesn't turn, just the small arbor & stone. the grinder also appears to attach perhaps to a lathe or other tool. It has a 2 speed belt drive.

PART OF SOMETHING BIGER

It looks like a grinder for hard spots on rear brake drums.

Good find
by: Dan Andrews

I'll bet that grinder has quite a bit of value just the way it is. The motor alone is worth something. I would probably try to free up the shaft and use it for a wire wheel or buffing wheel.
