#214972 by rjent » Sat Jun 25, 2016 2:06 am

OK, pictures.

First, I didn't want to molest this machine very much as I am just the second owner of her. Dawn's father apparently lubed the machine with oil and all of the cast iron was just saturated with oil and sawdust. I have to admit, that the machine was very preserved, so oil as a lube is not all that bad. Anyway, I steam cleaned the cast and Aluminum parts then put an etching primer on. After that was dry for a day or so, I painted just about everything with the old Verde Green Hammered (I still had a case of it left). I then over coated with the gold metallic trying to get the hammered look with a non hammered paint. Worked fairly well. This is not a "rebuild" thread, there are a hundred of those here. Go see MickyD's threads for detail rebuild instructions, didn't think we needed another one ... LOL The bearing were all perfect and I just polished the tubs and the table rods (see pictures). I did acquire a Speed changer (bought yet another 51 10ER :rolleyes: for the SC and I got a set of retractable casters for her from Skou. AND, before some of you eagle eyes find the belts fiasco on the SC, those were just staged as I had some belts coming from Skip, but didn't have them yet. The SC works perfectly!

I will post more pictures tomorrow ....

Thanks all! As many of you who have done it, it is a labor of love. I have one more to do. That will give me five ShopSmiths .... what am I thinking!?! :D

A you have some of the most coveted machinery around :D
B you made them into show pieces and workable again :D
C you enjoyed doing that, even though, I just clean them up and use them and put them to bed wet :rolleyes:
C as Skou/Steve sez, "They dont print them any more" :(
Hopefully they will be with are children/grand children for another 40-50 years ;)
