Description: A grindstone set on a horse-type frame. The frame's legs project diagonally around a rectangular section. There is a handle projecting from one side of the grindstone.

A grindstone is a tool used for polishing, sharpening and grinding tools. It is usually made in the shape of a wheel and with a pedal in order to allow rotation, which controls the sharpening process. Early grindstones were made of sandstone. _http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grindstone_%28tool%29_
