Can anyone give me a little background information on this grinder? It was my uncle’s (he passed away in 2001), he was a collector mostly of handplanes but, you know how it is, sometimes you must buy a “lot” of something and you get, well, a bunch of stuff you may or may not want.
What I can tell you is that the stone is 14-inches in diameter and 2-inches wide. The stone has some wear on the edges but I still think that it can be redressed. It says “Genuine Nova Scotia Stone” on the side and the bit of research that I’ve done, Nova Scotia seemed to be the place to get these stones. The sides of the well are, much to my surprise, made of wood and painted silver. I’m not all that certain how the tool mount works and there seems to be one thumbscrew missing.
I’m thinking that this grinder should be mounted on a table with the motor near the floor? Can anyone tell me its approximate age and value? I’d like to sell it, I already have a Delta Universal Wet/Dry Grinder that I’m perfectly happy with!
