Well, so this blog has not turned out as interesting as I had hoped. There’s just not that much exciting about degreasing, “polishing”, and painting. I suppose I expected more hurdles along the way, however I’d say that all-in-all I got pretty lucky by having a pretty solid machine to begin with.
Here are some pictures of the “final” product. My only real hesitation is that now I need to figure something out for the stand. I have plenty of options, I just need to decide which path to take.
If I may, as I’ve said before, I’m afraid these pictures don’t quite do this machine justice. They make it look like the fence is still rusty, but I assure you that quite a bit of effort has gone into making the bed tops and fence shine. You can kind of see the reflection of the cutterhead guard in the fence.
As always, your questions and feedback are welcome. Thanks again for looking.
