    Default Jones and Shipman 540 surface grinder - curious about year, and need manual

    Serial no. BO 17347....

    Also anyone know of an operations manual (this one has power feeds) online or print for sale. There is a manual FS on eBay but it seems to be for an older model.

    I think that serial number's from around 1990, the nameplates on the motors often have the year on if you want to be sure. Manual in your PM.

    As I am sure you are aware, the 540 evolved over he years, the later manuals were not:very comprehensive, you need an early one giving photos!of the major assemblies and part numbers.
    I have a copy of this which, from memory, runs to 20 or more pages. I have never seen an original.
