Yesterday I tore down this old engine-powered bench-grinder I found in the barn.  I blasted and painted it then let it sit overnight.  I got a new 4" wire wheel, but couldn't find any grinder-wheels at my local True Value... Aparrently they don't carry them!  I got it all together and put my pap's farm insignia on it.  Figure it'll look nice on his shelf and give him and his friend's something to talk about in Florida.

Do you mean motor powered?

Motors are electric, and engines are internal combustion units.

I know that motor-cycle is an exception, but we drive on parkways and park on driveways!

I also questioned whether you meant engine, or motor driven. Either way, I am sure he will love it!

I couldn't drive my truck on a parkway !

Actually, we used to have this hooked up to an ICE (Internal Combustion Engine), though it could be run by both!

I was wondering if maybe it had been powered with an old "hit & miss" engine.....

We had an old Briggs Model N on it.  That was when we first got the farm.  The engine finally died but we kept the grinder.
