    I have just come into posession of my grandfather’s pedal powered grinding wheel and wonder if there’s a market for these or if I should just plan on keeping it for a conversation piece. It looks exactly like the one in the photo except it it red. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

    This is almost identical to one my Grandfather had. I’ve waited 25 years for this to become available and
    now it goes to an in-law family member instead. If this would be for sale, please contact me. Although,
    I’m not sure how you would do that.

    Hello. I have a stone that originally was pedal-powered but was changed to electric in the 20’s. It came from a farmin Iowa and the entire thing is built with heavy wood and an old Emerson Electric motor. The wheel is 18 5/8 by 2 5/8 and is in perfect condition. I used it to sharpen my tools but want to sell it now. The wheel is mounted to an old Hobart food processor bevel gear arm and turns at about 60-80rpm. It is heavy, probably 250lbs. I have pictures, please contact me at 1oregonjake@willamette.net and I will send you pictures. I want to sell it soon as I am back in college and need tuition money. Thanks.
