Well, I didn’t get a lot of time to be in the workshop today but I did get the disc platen cleaned up and the sanding disc installed. I also cleaned up its cast iron table. It had a slight coat of rust from sitting in the garage and then when I used 409 and hot water to clean it. Got the rust off with TopSaver and then sprayed a coat of Top Cote on it. It’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
Oh and I decided to replace the platen behind the belt due to it being dished in a bit right at table level. It was cheap enough (compared to what one of these costs). So that will make the machine like new. Worth the expense and still my total investment will be way less then buying one of these new. So after I clean up the cast iron table for the belt finishing it up for use will be on hold until the platen arrives.
