She called me this afternoon and asked me if I could use a grinder, I have a small HF one but I need a bigger one.  So she discribed it to me and I asked how much.  The guy said $49 and I told her to offer him $35.  He took it!   :rocker2:  :rocker2:  :rocker2:   When she got home this evening I got it out and to my surprise it is brand new in the box and has never been put together.  I told her she did excellent!!!

Hope it does a great job for you, Bill. Grinders are a must have when working on tractors.

It sure does.  In my excitement I didn't notice it.

 

The guy told my wife he bought when they lived in Cobb to use in his shop but they moved out here shortly there after and it got put on a self and never used.  It was in the box with Styrofoam around it and all the hardware in the bag's.  Yes she is a keeper! 

 

She get dinner tomorrow night, not for the grinder but for our anniversary.  :thumbs:

Nice sturdy looking unit. 1/2HP will be a pretty strong motor. Is it 8" or 6?
