Wait till you see after the RM clean you could eat off it albeit better be small noodles ๐Ÿ

Now weโ€™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 canโ€™t wait to rebuild ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

This was first time apart >>>
