Could this be of any use to someone making a mirror?

A "RIT LENS EYEGLASS GRINDER SHAPER", in Vallejo, CA (SF Bay Area)

Not mine, just was cruising Craigslist and thought it might be of some use to someone here.

Could be... I worked in an eyeglass shop (3 days, all I could stand!) and the thing did put lenses out. But these are small lenses, suitable for eyepieces or correctors but nothing major.

Make sure it has the diamond sintered "cup", as finding or buying this could be tedious and costly.

But for $60? Wow!
