    Default Need Help Identifying this Grinder

    This is a Tool Sharpening Grinder that's been in our shop for a long time.

    I'm tasked with finding the operators manual (or how to use it). I'd also love to know the brand/model number (there is a guess that it's an ENCO). There is no serial number to help with this.

    Info I have:
    Appears to use 5 or 6" wheels
    Might be Enco brand (Person is not sure)
    All in one kind of deal, built for tool sharpening (these are not jigs that were made in the shop)

    Any info you guys could give would be awesome.

    It's a Darex drill sharpener and they no longer support that model, although their website does give a phone number to call. Not a general tool-and-cutter grinder, but specifically a drill sharpener.

    I want to say it's an M5 model, but the particular configuration shown in your photo might be another model. All the Darex sharpeners of that generation used the same chucks, so it's mostly a matter of which options are involved. For example, the one you show has a dedicated point splitter attachment on the right-hand side.

    Wowza that was quick!

    I'm looking at the manual for it now and that definitely the model (well m3 m4 or m5 at any rate).

    Thanks for the info

    We had that same machine. Some parts broke on it and they would no longer support it.
