Maybe the deal was too nice -- I noticed ebay removed the posting. Must
have been a scam. - GWE

Its still there its just the OPs message has had the link wrapped. I
wish it was in the UK I might have bid on it as I could use one
occasionally but don't want the space taken by a larger surface grinder.

Ooh, that *is* cute. If it's rigid enough I would love to have that in
place of my 6x12" machine which weighs like 1500 pounds. However, I already
have my SG so I'm not likely to lift a finger .. - GWE

Keep in mind that the seller states there is noticable wear on the ways.
That would make me think twice. Plus you have to add the $40 crating fee
and probably 200 shipping fee to the price.

The wear is depicted and *is* rather considerable...it is a 1957 model


I am not stating that the seller did not disclose this info.

I am stating that a SG with considerable wear on the ways will have
limited usefulness because I don't think it will grind a very flat
surface anymore.

It has climbed to a bit more $$ than I would care to give for it, but
it certainly looks like a usable and restorable tool....


It is similar to mine, but with differences.

1) The table was designed for coolant.

2) (As mentioned) there is a coolant fixture on the stone guard.

3) The mag chuck is a permanent magnet one. Mine is an
electro-magnetic one, and the manual warns *not* to use coolant
with the EM chuck. (And after examining the circuitry, I can see
why. :-)

There are the openings in the casting for the EM chuck power
cable and the second toggle switch which goes:

HOLD -- OFF -- AC DEMAG

It looks pretty nice -- other than the bed wear, and that could
be re-ground or scraped by a dedicated restorer.

It is also almost closed, now.

Enjoy,
DoN.
