Well one of the bitter angry little minds here at LJ’s reported me to The MAN fo posting my Grizzly resurrection story under the wrong section. So here we go again now in the proper area. It all just confirms my thoughts that the people on my banned aren’t worth my time. So sad that someone would have such a great amount of low self esteem. We can all just pray that one day that guys like Bently move out of their moms basement and maybe date a real flesh and blood woman.
LOL that should get somebody all sideways ;)
Ok so I got a heckuva a deal on the old CL for an old Grizzly 3HP Cabinet style TS, a G1023 to be exact. Now the poor machine had been relegated to being stored in a steel shed and a few months ago the temps around here plummeted overnight and the evil Condensation hit!
Here is what I purchased
After less than 2 hours of work the rust was gone.
Here is what I did to get rid of it.
First I sprayed it down with the last little bit of Top Saver I had in a bottle, maybe about just under a quarter of a bottle. Then I went to work with a power drill and a wire brush attachment for it I had on hand. It made quite the mess and about a roll of Paper Towels to wipe it all off but man did it work quickly. When I was done with all the rust it was a pretty ugly mess on the top so I took my bowl sanding kit to it and power sanded it with 80 grit, then 100, 120, 150, 180, 220, 320, 420, 600, & 800. That gave me a pretty good finish on the top. It didn’t take much with each grit just enough to flatten and even it out. I then took a new bottle of Top Save and sprayed it all over the top, I let it soak in for about a minute then took a piece of 1000 grit wet dry and “massaged” it in creating a dark mud like goop of liquid and metal dust. I wiped it all off with paper towels then hit is with more Top Saver and some 1200 grit Wet Dry. Wiped it all off again and once it was all dry I buffed it with a cloth bonnet I use for buffing bowls and such.
This is what appeared:
I thought that was it. I wired it up with a nice new plug stuck it in my 220V outlet and ….... well it made a buzzing noise then cut out :(
Luckily Grizzly has a top notch tech support. I call them up and let them listen and the guy says it’s the whatchamacallits or the other deals. Transistors or the pins. I’m gonna open it up later tonight and figure out what’s going in. The tech guy made it sound pretty simple so I am guessing it won’t take me more than 8 or 9 hours to fix it. ;)
I’ll check in later. Ok first step to repair is too plug to tool in, right?? bbbzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz IT
