    Lightbulb Little press I forgot I had

    I bought this little Greenerd arbor press,well so long ago I can't remember when.I do remember that I paid the princely sum of $30 for it and two tap handles.Anyway I was cleaning up the other day and found it and since today was a rainy day,I decided to clean it up and paint it.

    Before-


    And after-




    I took about an hour to disassemble,clean and bead blast,then paint the casting.Highlighting the lettering took longer than that,to remember how I did it the last time

    The paint is just Rustoleum Hammered 7212830 Light Blue.

    Nice job weird,I think Arbor Presses are so cool what you can do with a stroke of your arm.

    I have the same press, tho missing the slot plate.
    I would love the dementors of the plate and slot sizes so that I could duplicate

    Now you can’t use it for fear of getting it dirty.

    Good work AND a respectable paint job!

    I haven't used my press for so long, it's covered in bench rubble. I think it's holding an air hose too.

    This one I don't think is original.It's thinner and made from steel,the dimensions of the factory plates are here-
