Restoring an American Grinder Co No. 2 Hand bench Grinder

04-02-2017 11:17 AM by Lynn Bradford. | 2 comments »

Greetings! I found an old subject line grinder at an antique mall. In pretty darn good shape, except the tool rest is missing, which I can make one for it. But the hard part (for me so far) is finding a 3/8”-12 Acme swivel bolt.The bolt used to hold the grinder to a bench. All I have left is a 2” length of the bolt with the swivel foot. I need a bolt at least 2-1/2” thread length, and a knob, either butterfly or fluted. I’ve seen Carr-Lane has swivel bolts, but not sure about the thread. I think their website has a minimum $100.00 purchase requirement. Has anybody found a good source for Acme swivel bolts? Thanks for reading,Dawg
