    This was the other machine I picked up the day I got the 10ee. Looks pretty darn new. Just now removing the plastic wrap and moving it to its location. Also has a nice magnetic chuck. I paid 965$ for it.

    Seems like a really good deal ! Could be wrong but it appears to be a fine pole chuck which is a plus also. Guessing it is 3 phase, if so you might want to put a vfd on it. I put a VFD on my boyar schultz and love it, soft start up to speed, does not take 5 mins for spindle to stop rotating (set at 20sec) and you can very the speed for special apps. Kind of a waste to run a large rotary converter for something that small. Your right, that grinder looks to be in almost new condition !

      Probably will put VFD on it. In the meantime I have a RPC for the 10ee

        vfd makes a lot of sense on a grinder, the soft start and stop is a huge advantage. We all know there is a bit of clearance between wheel and spindle and the imbalance that creates goes away after dressing....but without soft start stop the wheel can be jerked out of position meaning its got to be dressed every time you turn it on. Dressing a lot is a good thing, but with some intermittent jobs it can be an unnecessary pita the softy start stop fixes
        in Toronto Ontario - where are you?

            Multiple round belt drive was a common feature on the Knock Out surface grinders.
            I'm sure you knew that.

              Never seen a KO lee in person,
              and I have been in a lot of shops
              and auctions.

                I'm not sure if the real score of that auction is really the surface grinder or the 10ee?

                  quit rubbing it in ! They are both great scores.

                    Less than a grand for it, and coming from a state university so it probably doesn't have squat for time on it.............Yeah, between that and the 10EE you're going to get the much deserved "you suck"!

                      To offset the "You Suck" comments, I took a nasty fall today in the shop. Banged up my knees, elbows, and left rib cage. Not sure if I'll be able to walk in the morning. I was clearing up the space for the grinder, had just vacumned up the absorbent stuff you clean up oil spills with from an old spill. I was then carrying jugs of used oil and tripped, spilling oil all over the area I had just cleaned up. The wife put down new absorbent material in the same area.
                      You cannot make this crap up.

                        Ouch... that kind of crap hurts. At least you did not whack your head on a machine, which might have wider implications.

                        I assume your 10EE is a motor-generator set type?

                        Because the WIAD ones only use two wires from the 3 phase.... work fine on single phase.
                        CNC machines only go through the motions.

                          Nope, that fall does not offset the "You Suck" comments. Takes a very loyal forum member to admit here about a fall like that. Lumps and bumps like that are always worse the next day, been there too many times. Hope you heal up quick !

                            Yes, a 1941 motor/generator for the US Navy. Wish I knew what ship.

                              You of course know that Oil Dry and similar absorbents can be used until fully saturated. Just sweep it up and dump it in a bucket to be reused until saturated.
