GRINDER END: This unit is supplied with a No. 46 wide-mouth grinding end with a separate cast-iron bowl. The cylinder is removable when

rotating the cylinder a few degrees until the mounting flange clears the
nuts. The cylinder is a spiral fluted type, equipped with a deep-fluted
worm, designed for standard No. 32 knives and plates (not furnished).
