    The apron turned out to be a pretty big project. I was quite impressed with the complexity and quality of its components. I has a lot of lubrication points and lines with a small pump that is activated with the use of the apron hand wheel and an eccentric shaft. It pumps oil up to the top of the apron to a small reservoir and also pumps up to the carriage to lubricate it as well. I used a shaft through the worm gears in the apron to lift the apron off the carriage. I fabricated a bracket that mounts to the top of the apron and attached it to an engine stand for easy access to the apron and helps with removing the back half also. I figured it would work well in installing all the components when cleaned up.

    I'll post some pics when I put the apron back together.


    Next is to attack the carriage and get that cleaned up and oil passages cleaned.

      Any filler on that tailstock?
      Yes but not much actually. The castings on some of the components aren't too bad. I used Bondo filler for the first coat and then spotting putty if necessary.
      I planned to brush most of the paint originally. I used Sherwin Williams all surface oil enamel for metal and had a local auto paint store put the paint in rattle cans. This proved to be a great convenience and the parts were much easier to paint and have look good. I plan to brush the paint and primer on the main machine casting and head stock, but a lot of the components got painted with spray cans. I also used a high quality etching primer prior to the top coats. I also was surprised as to how the paint went on with spray cans, I had no issues with any runs at all. Maybe its the paint quality here!!

        Not sure that I will post my progress any more as there has been no participation or comments for my last two updates.

        Maybe I posted this project on the wrong forum.😥

        Nope. It's common to not have many comments from the viewers. If you want to gauge interest, look at the view count. It can give a completely different impression of the interest level. So far there are 1270 views, which is not bad. People are definitely looking, which means they are interested.

        It's looking good.

          That worked really well! Did the paint store have to thin it way down? Rattle can paint is usually very thin. Or is the can itself different & allows thicker paint?

            Great idea! I wonder if our local auto paint store could do that. Definitely going to check it out.

              They did have to thin the paint down. The SW paint was pretty thick and I think they thinned it 25%. I just went down and got 2 more cans made up. If you bring your own paint its $12/can. They charge $22 to match anything with their paint.

                I pulled off the carriage and cleaned up the V ways and oil ports. Lots of access to oil ports on this part. The ways seem quite clean for the age of the machine and obviously they got lubricated.

                  That looks pretty nice actually. Looks like you got a great machine, I'm sure many here will be envious when you are done.

                    I spent quite a lot of time stoning and cleaning the bed ways to get all the nicks and dings off before I try to refit the carriage back. It's amazing how well the PFG stones work to find any discrepancies in a machined surface. There were quit a few spots close to the chuck that needed attention.

                      It’s amazing how much chip wash and dropped object wear the tailstock ways take near the chuck.

                      My Sidney has it too. It’s more striking with tool steel carriage ways for contrast. (Especially in real life…)

                        Got most of the handles cleaned, painted and polished. I also found replacement plastic knobs with the same thread pitch from McMaster-Carr.

                          Wowsers, that's going to be good enough to eat off by the time you're done, beautiful work!
