So I stripped it last night, and a little more tonight until it was R rated. Primed some parts and put some Rust-Oleum paint on it. Got all the cast iron top parts waiting on the saw horses for me tomorrow (they will haunt me with all of their curves to clean). Figured out I could get the metal tags off the pieces with a little work so I didn’t have to tape them all off. I just have a sticker left on it that I dare not remove that is a list of patents that I think is pretty cool so I’ll tape that off and work around it.
So far, lots of elbow grease and a little courage. Seems to be working.
O yeah, I would love to leave the garage door open when painting and priming, but not when it is blowing Dorthy out of Kansas and raining cats and dogs. Soooo…. make it quick and get outside for some fresh air!
Metal tags and strange little rivet things that i tapped out.
Daunting cast iron clean up job waiting for me.
Two coated base, switch plate, and red safety thingy that I don’t see on any woodworkers jointer….hmm….
