I found the old invoice.  It was $58. 

No wonder they quit selling them!

I do my rakers on a regular chain grinder and shaped the wheel to the shape of the raker.    It works fine.

I do my rakers by hand which works out fine but relatives come around with chains that won't cut and that's a lot of filing to get those rakers down to where the chain will cut again.

That old Silvey raker grinder looks so awesome!  I would love to run into one of those.  I file them by hand also.  But, I'll confess, I hate it.

That seems to be rather expensive to me.    Is that the going rate for an old silvey grinder?

Not really.    Maybe if a collector wanted it.    Think about how some folks pay big bucks for old saws now days.

Would be a nice one being the first off production in a chainsaw museum.

 I just wanted to save pics as it was nice clean unmolested original.

Just saving pics of this $300 Simington 451 square grinder  south bend MI

CL ad = Good used Simington chain grinder for grinding square ground chains.
Serial # 172. I'm guessing an older model. Everything seems to work.
Forward and reverse on motor.

Different motor then I have seen in past, very small around.  @660magnum you know anything on this one?
