Cylinder grinder

Hi, new member here, I was wondering if anyone can help me, I used to run a mower repair business that I took over from my grandad and he gave me the old cylinder grinder, I was wondering if anyone would be able to identify it for me 

i will try and work out how to upload a picture now

As Wristpin says, a bigger picture will help, but, from what I can make out, it could be a Blakesley Reid

Thanks, don't know if that's any better , but I don't suppose anyone knows how much it's worth would they ?

I think that Hortimech is correct as it bears more than a passing resemblance to my ( later?) machine which carries a Blakesley and Reid I'd plate and also a later BRL decal which I believe it acquired when it was reconditioned before I bought it  second hand in 1978.

As for price there's only one way to test the market - auction .
