FREE Mirror/Lens grinding machine and various supplies, blanks, tools.
I acquired this a few years ago from the son of the former owner of Optica, who produced lenses and mirrors in Oakland CA for over 40 years.
WYSIWYG. The wiring could be overhauled, but the mechanisms seem sound if not in need of a little TLC. Variacs could be replaced/modernized. The whole thing is very stout and shows signs of extensive use (which to me indicates it was effective) There's lots of boxes of misc. materials, grits, rouge, tools, tool blanks, mirror and lens blanks, testing equipment. I cannot confidently identify the types of glass the blanks are made from
I originally hoped to refurbish this but ran out of time and space.

NOT for shipping; pick up in San Francisco CA.

Let me know if you have any questions/comments.
