  • Old B&D pedestal grinders

    I've got access to an inherited 10" Black and Decker pedestal grinder. It's from lates '40s to early 50's vintage with brown wrinkle paint finish, cast iron base. It's hardly used and the wheels spin for a few weeks when it's turned off. Is this a keeper or did the old machines have any inherent problems?

    Are old (new) wheels safe as long as they pass the ring test? They were stored in a cool, dry area, stacked flat.

    Its probably at least as good as the Miller's Falls one that I have. Someone else may have better info about the wheels, but they may be ok. Just don't stand in front of them when you start them up.

      Maybe Evan or his better half can comment on the wheels.
