Rescued another CM Block Grinder - 1/3 HP
« on: August 14, 2011, 02:18:48 PM »
I swear these things have a hold on me.

This little one was an enjoyable hour drive to Ft. Gratiot, MI;  yesterday.








Spent a couple of hours cleaning and wheeling. Silicon spray brought the power cord and 'rubber' feet back to like-new condition.








The eye-shields are the same style that I used for the 3/4 HP Block grinder, but a bit smaller: 4.25" x 4.5"  vs.  5.25" x 5.0".

It's condition is not as mint as the 1/4 HP I got for my brother last month; but that one was $35, this guy was $15 and a nice drive.

Oh, the seller had great living room lamps with shades for $10/ea. I took two.

Thanks for looking.

Still it's in really nice condition. You will have fun refurbing it.
