Response to Excited to see the restoration snaps if any ...
Taken by my maatje and el supreme master of images Martin >>>
Working perfectly now >>>
Front and Center >>>
The entire journey will come soon >>>
And now look what is on my bench >>> This would be the cannon pinion and hands >>>
It’s like I’ve been here before >>>
After hand clean ONLY >>>
Wait till you see after the RM clean you could eat off it albeit better be small noodles 🍝
Now we’ll over 100 hours to hand clean every part so perfectly so I could run through the final finish machine RM60 but I was turned away from the RM machine 3 times becuase the parts were still not clean enough - the RM has like a carousel of buckets & baskets that get dunked in various fluids + agitation and moved through different fluid then they ascend and turn and dunk in the next so dirty parts would mean @6 lots of fluids would need to be replaced - even when on the 3rd Time I needed a 3X loupe to see even a macro dot of dirt but finally all by hand my mate let me use his RM60 and finally the parts are ready clean and about too start the fun stuff - trying hard to forget all the hurdles like like broken screws broken parts busted pivots rusted pinions and arbors etcetera etcetera can’t wait to rebuild 👌👌👌
This was first time apart >>>
Well another year long resto but when you can take something so treasured and bring back to life with function it’s a feeling indescribable when the first time I see the balance wheel spin and the pallet fork tick I’ll be one happy Chappy u bet 🇦🇺♿️🙏🏻👌🤗
