Hello again from England. Please follow the link below to see the Atterton and Ellis cylinder grinder that dates from an era when English engineering was at its best. The old gentleman who owned this has sadly passed away and his widow has asked me to seek a new buyer. Not that I think anyone across the pond will want it but you asked to see it so here it is. Let us know what you think!!

Thanks Teyhan1! that's a very interesting piece of history! Am I to understand that all of that machine is a unitasker for sharpening reel mower blades? Seems like a lot...of course it's from a day when ALL mowers were reel mowers.

Thanks all of you for your replies. Yes the machine is a unitasker. It spins the blade at the same time shapens it and all in a perfect cylinder so as it runs true to the bottom blade.

That is a really neat piece of history. Would be great to see it in action in person. I guess video would work to but it wouldn't be the same.
