What type of paint did you use Bob? Enamel?

Hi Bob , that looks like a good solid old style Black & Decker type tool, they dont make them like that now , It should be like new once you have finished with it Graemlin

Cheers Mick.

Nice work Bob.
hi all last bit i got sum new bearings and put it back to gather and she is running brill pics

I've got the same grinder, except I repainted mine in hammered gold. Do you have the end covers Bob, there are some, the really early ones that didn't have end plates, apparently if it's got little 1/8"th holes in the edge of the cast wheel guards it should have the end plates, mine were there but rough, they took a couple of hours with a hammer and dolly to get right, now you couldn't tell they were ever bent.

Mine came as a lump of dust and muck in a pile of old cracked flat drive leather belts and other dross, the guys that used to work for me thought I was nuts bothering with it;

First they said "it'll never run",
Then they said "it's not worth cleaning",
Next it was "it's just too old",
then"Why paint it"

Now they say "Can I borrow it"

Best Regards
