    That's one way to reduce fatigue. And the dogs are a nice touch...

    Kind of sets precedence for laying down on the job doesn't it. having the grind wheels below them probably on a single long arbor driven by a single flat belt not only saves space reduces the need of many moving parts lower maintenance, allows them to grind away from themselves so sparks and dust travels away and down instead of filling the air around them. plus gives their dogs a place to lay and stay close to their owners without getting in the way.

    "Yellow Bellies"
    The dogs were trained to keep the grinder's legs warm.
    Just when I though I knew it all.

    I don't grind knives. But we [Fred, Spirit, Bear] sleep that way. They have sit and wait until I'm under covers. Best get comfy quick, one weighs 96, the other 65.
    It's not new, but one thought crosses my mind often. When wild dogs or wolves were first domesticated, this likely began soon thereafter.
