I Forge Iron

Followed me home and fixed

Recommended Posts

My wife got these at a horse auction for $200 and brought them home two nights ago. Plus some tongs. Good wife, no?

Spent a large chunk of today taking the blower apart, de-rusting, and painting. I'll put it back together when it's all dry, and paint the lettering. The Columbian is 70 lbs, has about 6 million percent rebound, and under all that rust was in near pristine condition.  Just a little minor damage from some *explicitve deleted" cold shoer. Went more aggressive than normal and used a knotted wheel to get the rust and gunk off, then some BLO TLC.....which oughta dry in a month or two in this weather.

Blower all done and purty. Fan needs adjustment, it's rubbing the housing, but the paint needs more cure time in this weather. It was tacky when I reassembled and I had to touch up a good bit. Probably bent the blades a little bit while cleaning the rust.
