I picked this drill grinder up at HGR recently. I was familiar with the older Wilmarth & Morman "New Yankee" drill grinders, but never knew that Covel continued to manufacture them.

Does anyone have a Covel catalog showing this machine? I'm curious to know what was mounted on the left hand side (I do have the drill grinding rest that goes on the right, just took it off for transport). Vintage Machinery doesn't have any information, and Clausing doesn't support Covel products.

Thanks,
Andy

I found a government price list from 1941 that lists Covel's various drill grinder models. Apparently this had a point thinning attachment on the left hand side. Would still like to see some catalog pages if anyone has them. Thanks.
