Comments:
I recently purchased this grinder in southern Indiana from a gentleman named Mr. Jenkins. He told me that it came out of an old barn in Elgin North Dakota and that the gentleman who owned it was 93 years old and said he was going to sell a few things and slow down a bit.

Mr. Jenkins performed the restoration on this grinder and it is in excellent fully operational condition.
