I had some time to kill today and I’d just watched some videos on restoring grinders last week An decided to give it a go. Went pretty fast An was simple. I’ve never heard of an Amash brand before but most of my tools are craftsman so I painted it up black “hammered” and red. Matches my tool boxes now!
The purpose wasn’t to restore to “new” I just wanted to clean it up I’m sure it wasn’t particularly valuable but it belonged to my father in laws late brother. When my father in law gets his garage built I’m gonna give it to him as a surprise

Love transformations – just like making a wood pile log look pretty, just a little different
