You are viewing an antique rotary grinder which was used to sharpen tools on the farm or in the handyman's shop. The grinder still works and rolls around and around with the turn of the hand. The antique grinder was old when we got the unique piece fifty years ago. The grinder is steel with a wooden handle. The measurements are 7" x 14". A grinding machine, often shortened to grinder, is a machine tool used for grinding, which is a type of machining using an abrasive wheel as the cutting tool.
