Dunked all nuts & bolts in EvapoRust for 2 days and laid out in some kind of organized fashion:
Washed base and panel covers. Rust is still present on these metal pieces… unsure how to go about it. Quite possibly leave as is, as I have never done metal painting. Besides, color matching would be a chore ? I would have to ask other LJ machinery restoration folks about how to proceed.
Took the motor apart just a little bit to see how to go about cleaning and checking things out. The capacitor looks to be in ok shape. Going to have to figure out how to get the rust off the housing (been spoiled with EvapoRust and electrolysis).
And finally figured out a good way to get rust off the lower bed. Flipped upside down and poured the last of the Evaporust with some other parts into some sheet metal I had laying around.
