I just bought this and can’t find a model name or number other than a serial number on it. According to the nameplate it was made by Burle Industries for Grass. Hoping to learn more and find a manual for it.

I cannot understand why you bought something not having any idea as to what it is,or what it does LOL .I can only assume you got it very cheap and decided to take a wild chance/punt .I must say however it looks very interesting so if it was cheap I too would have bought it for the fun of it and hoping it would be useful,even if used for parts for other work.Have fun it would appear we are both equally mad,LOL Alistair

Have you tried emailing Grass? I’m sure they’re quite efficient and would get back to you.

LOL, The day I stop learning I’m dead.

It was part of a package deal from a cabinet shop that had gone out of business. I gave $300.00 for it, a Grizzly model G1531 bench top edge sander with 5 belts, a Delta bandsaw model 28-203 with 10 new blades, a Craftsman portable dust collector and a Tradesmith model 8360 scroll saw. The grass machine (I’m told it is a GM II) came with app. 500 asst. hinges, soft closers, etc., a box of attachments that are marked Blum and a second boring head that may be part of the Blum setup, a 5 spindle head and several new boring bits.

Plan to call Grass the first chance I get.
