My wife and I were out Yard Sailing when we saw an old Singer treadle machine in a much nicer table than the one we currently had. She asked me what I wanted to do with two sewing machines. Replace the sewing machine with the bench grinder was my answer.
It worked out to be a great fit. I have yet to notch the top so I can leave the left guard on when folding down the grinder. Wrenches, buffing compound and spare parts are stored in the drawers. In the future I might hook up the treadle to a buffing cone since it is clear of the grinder.
It is a bit of work get the sewing machine off of the base. If you are going to attempt this, then have a strong large flat head screw driver.
