« Part 4: Rust removal...Go! Part 5 of 1966 Unisaw Refub series Part 6: Repainting has begun... »

Three days later, the base is clean of rust, with bare, black cast iron where there was rust. Also lots of peeling paint as the rust underneath was removed. The stand is going through one final cycle while I’m at work, but when I get home today I’ll scrub all the surfaces with a steel brush to remove any loose material and apply primer to seal the base against further rusting. My buddy has a nice air gun for painting he’s loaned me.

We’re going with fire engine red for the base and stand, with black for the very bottom of the base and black on the boxes, switch cover, etc.

Pics to follow.
