    went to the scrap yard the other day and found this in the pile, they let me have it for free! put a new cord on it ...........and it works GREAT! the date stamped on it is 2-60 half a century old and it still spins like new!

    I cant believe someone threw this away as scrap metal! funny thing is I have been wanting to get a new bench grinder all year just never had the extra cash, and this falls at my feet,(literally) also got a pair of 25lbs dumbbells, the owner of the scrap yard was cool enough to tell me to just put it on my truck and it will weigh out when I leave (so the weight of the grinder and dumbbells was just deducted from the weight of the scrap I was selling)

    Cool find! I've got one just like it (without the rust) that I got years ago from my grandfathers workshop.

    Nice find. I've got the same one also,(without the rust). Picked mine up at an estate auction about two years ago for $15.00.

    When I go to the scrap yard I take a buddy and have them drive since I weigh more. I get out of the truck after the weigh in as we drive back after dumping it lol
