Kid Tales:
This grindstone was pedal operated allowing one person to turn the wheel by pushing on the pedals with his feet while holding the tool needing to be sharpened in place with his hands. It is missing the seat and rods that connected to the pedals. Some also had a waterer to keep the tools cool as they ground on the stone.
