Just picked up this Covel 7a surface grinder. Interesting story on this find. I found it at a indicator repair shop locally. He mentioned that he rarely used it and had gotten it from a retired machinist for Pratt and Whitney that had it in his home shop. I plan on doing a total clean and inspection and some paint. There doesn't seem to be any sloppiness at all which is good. Hopefully I won't have to do anything major to it and get some use out of it!
