Went to Goodwill today and found an old belt driven 6" bench grinder.  It's made of cast iron and doesn't look like it was used much.  It weights about 20 lbs. and the belt looks brand new.  I have an old drill press that's driven by a separate motor and belt.  I'm going to hook the grinder to the opposite side of the drill press and just share the motor between the two tools.  The wheels are coarse and medium grit.  The best part was it only cost me $7.  I don't even think you can buy a grinding wheel or belt for that price.

I also stumbled upon some speaks for my shop sound system.  The Speakers are Panasonics from the 70's they're only 36 watts but they have good sound and they go with my vintage Realistic stereo that I bought for $10 at a yard sale.  The speakers were $12 for the set.    :rocker2:

I love it when people want new stuff and get rid of their old stuff.  It gives me the opportunity to buy the good stuff instead of the cheaply made stuff. :smilewink:

It's good that you will use those items.  I agree with you.  Use what was good then, it's still good now.   Nice score on the grinder.

Those are nice finds. Good idea on using the same motor & takes up less space. You'll be thumping the shop walls with those speakers. I still have my old Sony outfit I bought for $1100.in 1979...crazy!

Nice grinder. Those speakers look like a set I used to have hooked up to a tv that quit working years ago and threw in the dumpster not long after.
