Here's a grindstone, probably from the late 1800's or early 1900's. It has a name tag on the cast iron frame, but I can't make the name out.
I see others on the internet that are similar to this one and they are all "Millers Falls" brand. I do believe that this too is a Millers Falls grinder.
It is held on three legs, probably to keep it level and prevent it from being wobbled during use.
You can use the foot treadle or the hand crank to operate it.
It has a plugged drain hole in the water tray to lube the ground item, then you take the plug out to drain the water out, preventing rust and stone corrosion.
With the pin striping, and the nice paint job, it makes a nice display in our foyer.
I wanted to list something today so I could have the opportunity to wish all of my friends on Collector's Weekly a very
"HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON and a PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.
