Know Anything About a Doerr Sander?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been recruiter by a friend to sell a belt sander that belonged to his dad.  It is a Doerr bench top sander that looks to be made maybe in the 50's or 60's.  Anyone know anything about it and perhaps its value?  I know it is cast iron and darned heavy.

Found this info on vintage machinery site.

 

Electro Machines, Inc was formed about 1941 and was reorganized into the Doerr Electric Corporation in 1951. It was acquired by W. W. Grainger in 1969 for $20 million, then sold to Emerson in 1986 for $24.3 million.

Under both names—Electro Machines and Doerr—this maker was an OEM supplier to Delta Manufacturing Co.

Thanks Dan.  I saw that also but I have come up empty on every avenue I take.  I talked to Larry Buskirk today about it and he was clueless as am I.
