This 65 lb Coffee Mill came out of a store in WV -- retired owners auctioning off their home furnishing how I wound up w/it. Label says it all - mfg by Cincinnati Time Recorder. I've been researching it but have been unable to find out any information on it. I've not seen any like it anywhere including Ebay. Anybody know anything about it? I'm guessing mfg in early 40's. The electric cord is pre UCL. The motor and grinder mechanism are similar to the other early electric models of the 20's & 30's, the difference being everything is neatly enclosed and the illuminated sign on this one. The motor was mfg by Leland Electric in Dayton - 1/4 hp single phase. It works wonderfully.

    This is a store model probably used in the late 1950's or early 1960. (I'm going by the fact that I don't see a Zipcode on the label). Most of the independent IGA'S had these to grind A&P, 8 O'Clock and other coffees.
    Not sure of a value because I'm sure of the demand.
    Hope this helps,,,regards, Larry
    HAPPY PICKING!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Larry. Helps. Funny you don't see any around. Maybe they wound up in the dumpster come store remerch time. It's a beastly thing, meant not to be moved at least very often.
