    That appears to be a high quality industrial model made in U.S.A. It also appears that you were very well compensated.

    It looks heavy duty, It will never die. What does the name plate say? I bought my sears grinder 40 years ago and I use it alot, ball bearing type also. It will probally outlast me. My neighbor has a simular one like yours, it was a hand me down, still going strong.
    Enjoy your new toy,
    Paul

    Very nice! Complete with the rests that are usually missing on older grinders. :D

    You got a good deal for your efforts.

    I have an old Dunlap that has to be well over 50 years old that is still going strong.

    Some info on the company that made your grinder:

    This grinder is a Walker-Turner badged machine, built by Kingston-Conley.
    US made, all cast iron contruction = smooth operation.

    Speaking of when real grinders were made check my bad boy, notice grease fittings on the
    top and run it with a glass of water on top.

    My neighbor has one labeled Miller Falls that look like yours but Brian is correct. An enlargement of your motor tag (see attachment) seems to confirm what he says. Maybe the Kingston-Conley made them for others as well.

    Great grinder, take care of it.
