VINTAGE 1930s/1940s FINGER PULL MACHINE FOR GLASS DOORS/DISPLAY CASES. THIS IS THE MACHINE USED TO GRIND A 5/8 INCH WIDE LONG FINGER GROOVE IN GLASS. THESE GROOVES ARE ACTUALLY RECESSED INTO THE GLASS TO ACT AS HANDLES IN SLIDING GLASS WINDOWS AND GLASS FURNITURE DOORS. THE MOST COMMON EXAMPLES WOULD BE IN SHOWCASES IN AREAS WHERE THERE IS CONSTANT OPENING AND CLOSING OF SLIDING WINDOWS, BUT TYPICAL HANDLES ARE NOT USED OR DESIRED. WE DID NOT FIND A MAKER'S MARK OR NAME BUT WITH IT'S ART DECO BASE SUPPORT IT IS FROM THE 1930s OR 1940s. BEING THAT IT IS A WET STONE GRINDER IT COULD BE USED FOR MANY DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS (SHARPING KNIVES/TOOLS). THE STONE ITSELF SHOULD BE WORTH OVER $300.00. THE MOTOR IS NEWER BUT EVERYTHING WORKS AS IT SHOULD. THE WOOD TOP NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. $250.00.
