Ive emailed a farthing specialist about the bike so it'll be interesting to see what they think. Ive had a look at other trench art and whilst some of it is very nice, this little bike has something about its quality that most trench art doesnt seem to have have, thats if it is trench art, and i think theres a good chance it might be.
I agree, its better than 99% of the trench art ive seen. Let us know what the specialists say.
As for our kitchen, I thought everyone already knew about these. They came about after the war when there was an abundance if sheet metal workers and loads of ally. There built like aircraft. Great quality, every single screw is plated brass slotted dome heads. We got ours years ago, worth quite alot of money now.
Our previous house was super kitch 50's but this house we toned it down a bit and everything is inter war or just post war in style with the odd mid century touch.
I stripped and cleaned this grinder, turned out the previous owner had rebuilt it with new bearings, a paint job and a re finished spindle. Back in one piece now, just running the bearings back in. Il clean the motor up and maybe make a stand ince ive found out if I can get arbors to fit 18.5mm (0.71") ish (odd size?) With 2.5 (10tpi?) Threads.
