A vintage foot operated 'Allball' grinder by Heyden of Redruth. This grinder, believed to date from the 1930s, was traditionally used by travelling blacksmiths to sharpen their tools. The grinder base has a six inch horizontal grinding stone, which is mounted on a cast iron base with foot pedal.
The grinder is in full working condition with the wheel and pedal moving freely and comes with a fixing bracket. The pedal is embossed with the maker's mark 'Heyden Allball Redruth'.
