I am working on a couple of SJs, one from '96 and one from '97. The one that is finished is from '97.
These are in fairly typical condition for grinders that I see that were in commercial service, perhaps a little rougher than most but not far from the norm.
This is an overview shot of them on the bench. I take them apart as need to make sure they are in good shape when I am done. The '97 is nearly ready to go to it's new home with a friend of my son and a CG member who is in the Navy. It is a Christmas gift, SHHHHH don't tell!
Both these grinders looked like sisters, the same color and wear patterns.
