Is this what I think it is? Tool post grinder?

I found this at the local state surplus store.  No markings except on the motor.  Looks like a tool post grinder to me, but I have only seen them in photos.  It weighs in at about 22 lbs.  A bit massive for my 7x12 mini-lathe.  Not sure what it would be worth.  Name brand ones run fairly expensive.

Judging by the size and the block that goes in the compound slot it is for a larger lathe. Much larger........

I don't think I will ever have a lathe big enough or a need for one of these.  (famous last words) Off to Craigslist it goes.

almost looks home made. A good one will have no vibration when running. I might be interested.

If the spindle is good then the other use is to mount it on a shaper.
Cycle in and out slowly and use a rotary table. The are supposed to be
very good. ( stiff ).
I missed one at auction many years ago. Walked into the auction just as the hammer
was falling.
