Hi people, as promised I’ll show you the recovery that I did with this old miter saw “Compa 250 Export”.
It’s a beautiful tool, entirely of cast-iron, and since over the years has been used by professional carpenters (2 generations) is still highly accurate!
The work, although it was the first time I competed in a similar work was hard but fun, thanks to friends of “il-truciolo.it”. Special thanks must go to my great friends Franco (woodhobby58), Aldo (om-aldo) and Vincenzo (vinceg) who guided me step by step!
However, I lubricated everything to avoid the risk of breaking rusted parts, I removed every piece
I removed all the paint
I gave the bottom first and then the new color, whereupon reinstalled everything.
After changing the blade with an almost new CMT
and after verifying that the cuts were very clean and precise, I have dedicated myself to reconstruct the missing parts, especially with regard to safety.
And so this is the miter saw over.
As a first restoration I must say that I really enjoyed and I hope you enjoy the result as I do!
