Looks good.
I have one that I need to replace the handle on also. It seems to be peened too.
How were they put on originally? Screwed on maybe.
How did you go about cleaning?
Wish I had the original legs for mine.

Anyway, Very nice clean up
Thanks for showing it

Well, since I was mainly cleaning it in the kitchen while my wife recovered from a hysterectomy, I used Simply Orange and Dawn dishwashing liquid after the initial spray down with DW-40. I used a wire wheel on my dremel and a larger one on my drill to clean up the exterior. I used a wire brush on the interior. For some of the tight spaces inside I ended up using a dental pick. Currently it's lubed with motor oil. Each of the three legs is in some state of rust deterioration on the bottom, but otherwise it's in great shape.
