Fleischmann Toy Grindstone

Description (Brief)
This toy grindstone and figure was produced by Fleischmann during the 1960s. The grindstone has a pulley that could be connected to a steam engine’s flywheel to provide power to the grindstone. The man is connected to the grindstone in such a way that it seems as if he is turning the wheel while it is powered by an engine.
