Well its new to me! Its a Boyar Schultz from about 1950. Even though its old, this thing is as smooth as it was when it was new! What is it? It's a surface grinder! what's that for? well you see the nice finish on 1911 frames, and slides, S&W hammers, trigger, etc etc.....this machine is the grinder puts the super nice ground finish on all things metal! Oh and it runs so smooth!
