1. Bell Grinder Marker
Inscription.  

Used for grinding ore rocks, preparing
them for the mill. This type of rock crusher
had a bell shaped object in the crushing
mechanism that turned and when rocks were
poured into the hopper the bell shaped object
would turn, thus crushing the rock. Powered
by an external source through the use of a V belt.

 
Erected by Gunnison Pioneer Museum.
