    I've had this for about 3 years, stripped it down and dipped it as soon as I bought it then life got in the way and it’s been in bits in bare metal ever since just getting in the way ‍♂️

    So I’ve decided before the lathe arrives, that I better get some of this stuff sorted.
    Bought some evaporust yesterday and started getting rid of the surface rust again.
    Managed to get the base clean and etch-Primed yesterday, will update later with more pictures.

    Everything was etch primed and then I grabbed what I thought was primer/ undercoat

    Turned out it was topcoat so I’ll need to scuff and prime again

    Got the screw out and cleaned up too while the moveable jaw is soaking

    Is it wrong that I really quite like it in white ?

    Moveable jaw is out and cleaned up, I decided I can’t leave it with the broken bolt in place for the (missing) pipe jaw though
    So I’ll drill it out and re-tap
    Then I can make up a pipe jaw at a later date, or draw one up and get it laser cut from Domex or Hardox plate.

    I’ve cleaned up the little 80 a bit as well but no pics today, and the No3 is stripped and soaking in evaporust too.
    I’ll get some more pics tomorrow
    Thanks for looking

    So I got some more done today
    Polished up the bits that need it on both 75 and 80 then got some etch primer on and took some bad pics ‍♂️

    And the moveable jaw from the 75

    277CDCAF-C8B8-4141-B5E8-07DEC4C861B3.jpeg

    and to give you an idea on the polished bits, this has been scuffed ready for repainting with primer/undercoat too

    So, No3 moving jaw into etch primer:

    then into paragon paints undercoat (which is much nicer)

    1AA7C391-53D9-4901-82CE-DBDF4A57A997.jpeg

    And some colour on the other bits, but will need at least 1 more coat, probably 2

    So I finally got them back together, painted and the polished/ bare steel has been waxed.
    Still need to get the gold leaf for the lettering though

    From this:

    To this:

    And the 75 is done too

    Little and large

    20D7CD7C-1574-463F-93AF-9B47AB93BC6A.jpeg

    It’s a fair size, 5.5” jaws and 7.5” opening from memory

    And the final piece of the puzzle (apart from the gold leaf) was the missing pipe jaw.
    Which is now sorted

    and holding a bit of 38mm CDS rollcage tube, modified with a cut out to refit the spring and pin to this vice last week
