I don't see any of these in the galleries. Anyone know the years they made these?  I was just guessing post 1950.

This thing was filthy. Looks to have been in grandmas soul food kitchen where every meal had a fried component. And the smells coming off this thing during cleanup were awful. The value of a clean one of these would is understated for sure. 
The blade removal was less than easy and had to soak with blaster several hours before anything would budge. Turned out the set screw was kinda friction welded into the rotor. All came apart and utilizing the mineral spirit soak for the motor and speed control on this one. The gunk buildup combined with the smell makes it a good candidate for trial

I've searched through 12 or so pages looking for dating and could only find the dates/ literature for the double digit freshys. This one is a model 2000. Any dating info appreciated:up:

The ones withe badge ran 1948 to around 1958. After that was the F badge which ran from 1959-60 to the end which was around 1970. The no badge on the guard ran from 1935 to 1948.
