Antique 1920's? LETZ Hopper GRINDER MODEL 80 TYPE A ALL PURPOSE Feed HIT / MISS:
commercial grinder. This is probably from around the 1920's era of steam/gas hit/miss engines. This grinder is extremely heavy duty. It has two augers within the hopper. They are set up on a gear reduction ratio where one will turn several times and the other might only turn one revolution. It had been stored for years in a shed/lean-to off of a barn. It has surface rust, but does turn rather easily when rotating the pulley flywheel. The flywheel is 6-1/4" wide where the power belt would ride. It's about 15.75" in diameter with the main shaft that is 1-1/2" thick. Nothing is broken, cracked or welded up. All four bases of the feet are fine. I believe the that the grinding teeth and grooves inside the bottom of the hopper to be excellent. I only buffed a few spots where the name was cast into the iron, and where casting numbers appear for the parts. I did oil and apply a little grease at the zerks. I noticed that a couple of zerks should be replaced for adequate grease application. The LETZ GRINDER is a Model 80. Type A. Serial #327421. Anyone thattinkers around with the steam shows concerning steam or hit/miss engines should find this a real treasure in this condition for their display of their engines and the work it could perform. The hopper is about 20" x 24" x 15" deep. The overall dimensions of the large, heavy duty grinder are 44" x 27-1/2" wide x 36" high. It weighs in at about 250 pounds and that is real close. This will need to be picked up locally, unless the high buyer makes their own shipping arrangements. I do have the names of a a couple of reliable and quite reasonable carriers that I'll be happy to furnish to any prospective buyer. These carriers specialize in large, bulky, heavier cargo.
