I have sold a lot of old grinders and have never had a complaint.   Most people are shocked at how well they work once they have some time on them.  They are often replacing a Chicrap one

Picked this up at the flea this weekend. Know anybody who needs it? 😊

Those are good user tools too.   I find more DOE than box ends but still grab them all.

   I make the same joke with the name.  It works in Spanish too.

Normally wouldn't look twice at made in China shit but I liked the name. Quality seems ok and I don't have a set of metric deep offset wrenches. It's been fun asking people if they want to see my Fukung wrenches, get a lot of odd looks lolx

Growing up where I did Armstrong and SK ( the truly crappy years)  were common.   DI had a holding and Hinny was seen.

    Now a few miles distant they are all the odd ducks.   I love those big proud logos.   Hinny is king of that.

  I do not hunt then as users but just to display a few.  They stand out in a sea of old brown wrenches.

Fats,

I've got the same Crafty grinder.  I think you'll be surprised to find out these grinders used 7" wheels, unless the PO replaced them with 6" wheels.  These 7" wheels are hard to find... only available as used or NOS.

The B&D grinder looks like a keeper too.  I've never seen one like it.

Yes and no Gary. The 7" wheels are not something you will find locally unless you live somewhere like Chicago. That said you are not at the mercy of waiting for used. Wheels of that size can be ordered new from places like MSC, Travers Tool etc. You have to order the size from places that supply professional machinists and industry and the like.

Both grinders are indeed the shizzle though!  beerdude

Yup better get your car junk out of Mrs. GF's nice clean living room Ray!  :POKIE:

When it for the kids its OK. thumbsup2

......... In our house there is also an exclusion to the rules if her family members are involved!

Absolutely!! -- interesting to see how those special "kin-folk" rules work at times.  frustratedx

I do my best to avoid the "kin-folk" exemption as much as possible. It goes against my grain I will admit.

That odd one in the middle would be a very common one in my area. I like those old Hinsdale's
