At the very least we'd need a picture...... How-to-insert-pictures.
Bench grinders were manufactured by many companies.

Hi
1 pic of old Duracraft from the web, model 75-8R
3 pics of mine, model 86-8R, same on/off switch

since model numbers have same format and on/off switch the same
seems mine is an old Duracraft, but maybe sold by Sears or Kmart or ???

any idea where to get info on this old geezer

thanks

Maybe a BICO

It looks close to one I have. A BICO Machine Tools Grinder.

It was used in the coal mines for years. I got it with the steel table it is sitting on.
