Millers Falls, No. 3, Foot Treadle Wet Grinding Wheel
- Source: eBay
is a nice winter restoration project for the Millers Falls collector. Brass tag identifies it as Millers Falls No. 3. This was obviously a foot treadle operated grinder as evidenced by the attachment points on lower cross piece but this is all I have. You will need to fabricate the treadle, some bearing caps, and the wheel arbor. Measurement from center of bearing bore to bottom of reservoir shows this was intended for a wheel of about 14 inches maximum diameter. I have disassembled it without any trouble, had to split one nut is all. It's safely packed and will ship at 33 pounds, check calculator for cost to your location. T are no cracks or welds anyw, reservoir is not badly rusted.
