I have been doing some tests of technique for cleaning the various tubes on my Goldie. I will be posting some pics of methods & results as I go along.
Here is a drill holder I got years ago when I bought a cutting disk for my drill. I haven’t used this rig for years, but it is now earning its place in my “Good-to-Have” tool collection. It is adjustable in all directions except length.
This first “Tubes” post deals with the extension table legs. These legs are from my clone machine and were chromed but a lot of the chrome had been rusted out. This evening I used a sanding drum to hold the tube in my drill and used a cable tie to set & hold the drill trigger.
I used sandpaper grits 80 – 100 – 120 – 180 – 280 – 360 – 600 (wet). Followed by paste wax applied to the spinning tube with fine steelwool and buffed off with a polishing cloth.
Here is the result showing before & after.
