Those last ones are beauties! Especially the Record…I can see that’s your favorite.

I guess Chipper, the question you want to ask yourself is: Do I want to use this or sell it? If you’re gonna sell it, then get it photographed and back into it’s box. But if you’re gonna use it, well, it probably needs cleaning and sharpening, etc.

Two things I’ve learned for you to avoid is: #1: The dishwasher is a great place to degrease and clean it, but your housemouse will go freakin’ ballistic when she discovers it there! And sadly #2: The dishwasher will rust the heck out of all the exposed iron costing you countless man hours of steel wooling! So, avoid the dishwasher.
