    Surface grinder it aint.
    It seems to have a kick start down by the motor...It could be a combo motorcycle, mill, grinder...
    So cruising down the pike at 110 you could run a few parts.

    AFAIK Heald is the #1 name in old skewl ID grinders.
    Known as "Red Head"

    I believe that is a Cinci Milacron trade name?
    I'm guessing that Cinci bought the company somewhere along the way?

    Wiki might know?

    I thought "Red Head" was the trade mark for the spindle, even if it was on a boring machine.

    We had a held rotary-table grinder at the big shop. It was much like an arter. I think the magnetic table was 24". it had a plane-bearing spindle that wet bad so we sent it out and had it ceramic coated and reground to spec. the big cutter we faced on it had to run in less than .0002 and the machine did that easily. The wheel and table were reversible.
    much like this

    Yes Cinci was on the ones at Hardinge in the collet grinding dept. There were maybe 8 dual machine stations (one operator running 2 machines face to face). You've probably seen them if/ when you ever got the tour?

    I love the "first come first serve"....like crowd and expectation management is top of mind for this dude.

    I've never done it, but a small part of me wants to message a seller like that "wow, that looks like a great deal. Almost got that much saved up, will get back to you, keeping my fingers crossed its still available". Just to be devious

    The granite machine RE: [Was going to start doing my own Smith work, but don't have the health or dexterity for it now.] and perhaps not having the experience to do Smithing as that may not be the best choice machine.

    Poor guy could have come to PM to ask "What smithing equipment might be a place to spend $30k".

    Or go on a smithing website to see what smithing jobs entail.

    Well at least he's not asking much.

    A good deal...that on/off switch is worth $2.00 all by itself.

    Make an offer. What is he willing to pay to have you haul it off.

    I think my favorite part of that ad is that he says it's in fair condition.

    Wow, you can't beat a good condition pratt. Like it would be a better Mill than a green machine..or just use it as a drill press.

    One could even add stepping motors, control and a high-speed spindle to make a high-class router of it.

    darn, I have to go out of town, I missed buying that eaw and now it looks like I'm going to miss this pratt.
