View Full Version : Refinishing question

Should I save the plates that sorta give the history of the lathe? The 1st is a name plate that is rivetted on of the original machinery dealer (still in business) who sold my lathe to the Chicago School system in 1970 and the little piece that is ?glued? on has the Chicago School systems ID numbers on it.

If it were me, I would leave the dealer tag and not the school inventory control tag. I presume you are removing them and are trying to decide whether to put them back or not.

When I refinished my SB, I kept the dealer and asset "tags" that were on it. IMO Keep them on there, gives the machine some character and history.
