Wanted treadle grinder or just stone

Recommended Posts

Plus a pedal grindstone is a SLOW grinding stone. Stones from modern companies are generally made for much higher speeds.

The classic pedal grindstone is a soft "sandstone". Around here in NE Iowa, they show up pretty regularly at flea markets and in antique stores. 20 inch wheels or larger are pretty common. And you can often get them with metal or wood frameworks to hold them and sit on while sharpening a scythe or axe.

So check out the local antique stores and flea markets. There is not a lot of demand for them - other than with the full stand. The simple stones should be pretty affordable.
