Been touching up the sander every day since this saturday.
Electolisis removed all the gunk, rust and paint. Followed by hand brushing with brass brushes. Then I applied a hair drier to ensure that it was completely dried, then degreased again (hand gunk) with acetone. Hung and sprayed a couple pieces at a time.
Last touch up shots for thin areas where applied this morning, new fasteners are on order to finish the job. The “originals” are a mix of replacement styles. All the bolt heads are supposed to have full dog points, some where replaced with regular bolts.
I’m thinking I may black oxide them when they come in (plane steel fasteners).
I had to replace the knobs as one broke during disassembly. They where ordered from McMaster Carr. Great service from that company, every time. Simple press fit.
