I had a little time in the shop tonight and was looking for a small project to at least start. I forget how much you can get done when the kids are asleep.
I won this on ebay for under $20 a while back. Here is an “almost” before shot.
Here I have the first knob done.
I sanded the knobs chucked into my cordless drill. I used sandpaper, steel wool and then a cotton cloth with BLO and then wax. Paste wax first, then smeared straight hard beeswax and polished on the drill woth a cloth.
I did not sand all of the character away.
I chucked in a wire brush and went to town on the rust and small bits of paint splatter. Then I sharpened up the cutter and tested it out.
I needed to repair my bench top so this is a perfect job for its first run.
I had one cut nail left to make him a home.
Thanks for looking.
I even had one cut nail left to make him a home.
