Thanks Tracy it does have a certain ambience doesn't it?.so first, beautiful grinder!
Second, you will love the small wheel. Watch heat buildup on them. they can get so hot the seals leak and the grease leaks out and the bearings fail. The good news is bearings are cheap and easy to replace. We do it routinely in our shop as they see lot of use.
I've heard about the heat build up, so I'll be careful there.
One of these days I might actually paint the thing...but I'm not holding my breath.
