I've taken cosmoline off four machines now. It's not all that fun but the machine sure looks good afterward. That lead screw looks excellent!

Its funny. At first I was terrified about taking the machine apart, but David Best sent me some easy general instructions.

I am enjoying each part reveal itself, but I wouldn't want to do this 4 times. I should have my mill within 2 weeks, so I know I will have to do this once more, but a mill should be easier.

You are killing me with the photos... and forget about looking at Dave's thread when he took his apart and painted it....

Coming out great!!

The Norton gearbox was greased up, so I took it off and cleaned with a variety of brushes and wd40. Got it pretty good. Wish I had a parts washer, but doing this all by hand is giving me an opportunity to introduce myself to the lathe.

not a massive fan of paint overspray on the gears and drive shafts, but I guess it won’t hurt anything. Got the stand bolted together, ready to bolt on the bed.

I’m reminded of the question:
Trophy, toy or tool?

As much as I like perfection I often settle for perfunction :)
