Guide tube is rusty but straight

Evaporust to the rescue

Once again…. after cleaning things up, I discover little “gems”

The Cam foot is bent… an has been leaving indents in the guide tube.


I pulled a Biesemyer manual off the web… and this is what it’s supposed to look like…

Nice progress!
There ain’t no sittin’ on the fence for this rehab, as the Nike commercials say; “Just do it”!!!

Funny observation Randy…. especially since I started the Blog last summer :^O

I am on a roll, however, and want to get the saw set up and running.

Though I”m sure I could get replacements from Biesemyer and doubt they would cost much, I’ll try to fix this one up first, so that I don’t have to wait for the slow boat from AZ.

I’m looking for some dense, yet grippy rubber material to reface the foot. I already scraped off the cracked facing (appears to have been laminate) and cleaned up the parts.

Stopped by HD this afternoon and picked up a can of Rustolium primer.

I’m not much concerned with the aesthetic restoration, but the process of cleaning up the guide tube took most of the remaining paint off, so even though my shop is pretty dry, I’m still concerned about it rusting up again.

So I”m going to prime it and paint (mainly because I already have a couple cans of white, but also because they often come that way from Biesemeyer and I like it well enough).
