So a couple weeks ago my trusty ol' bench grinder stopped working. Worked fine one time, next time, nothing. Couldn't find anything obviously wrong. Rebuilt the switch, checked the connections, nothing. So I went looking for a replacement. Was hoping to find a good vintage grinder but I found this ugly duckling instead...

I was going to just do a repaint but when I stripped the blue spray paint I found the cases and wheel guards were this awesome aluminum!

I replaced the bearings and power cord (old one was covered with blue paint)(looking for an end cover) and now have a terrific old grinder.

In the meantime I discovered the first grinder just had a bad power cord, replaced that, and now have two working grinders. Perhaps I will set up the first one with some polishing wheels and do a proper cleaning on the aluminum bits of the second one.

mid seventieth I believe.
I agree, this is stamped on the bottom...

@Dave Stromberger - thanks for the link. LOTS of good information on that site. I wondered why there was no evidence of a name plate riveted to the front. Looks like later models had a sticker label in stead of a metal plate.
