Woodworking seems to have helped me be better organized .. or maybe just it made me have OCD? Anyway, this was a fun little project.
I decided to go with the 1 1/2″ moulding and start fitting to the case. This gave me a nice opportunity to whip out the mitre saw that I restored and cut the wrap around pieces. Once the moulding is on all I have left is the battens and the hinges. The end is in site.
- What’s the best way to repair the crack? I was thinking “spot weld” on the back side of the frame.
- Should I have the foot rebuilt and if so, any suggestions on how to do that?
- Cleaning. There doesn’t appear to be a lot of rust just a layer of greasy black “something”. Maybe its original paint or added later paint. Should I clean it or just leave it.
- Thoughts on assessing and lubrication the saw holding mechanism. It works fine as is, but I want to make sure it stays that way.
