Old Grinder

Postby AndyT » Sat Jun 30, 2012 4:19 pm

I bought out a studio last week and in all the stuff was an old Inland Wizard grinder. It was made in 1982 and was the first to have a plastic ribbed work surface. this grinder is like new and runs like a champ. Also included was the straight edge guide.
Of course I'm keeping it!

How does it keep the grinder head wet?

I bought one of those a few months ago as well! $5. at a swap meet. I love the small work area for smaller pieces. Mine of course doesn't look as nice as yours...
