image.jpeg I am in the middle of restoring an old no.4. So far I've stripped the entire machine, sanded, and primed most of the parts. I thought I'd post a pic, this has been a serious project and I'm delighted to be at a vantage point where I can see the end.

Very cool, I love my little Burke.
I was lucky though as the previous owner that passed away kept it in great condition, I was able to just use it.

I'm a lousy painter . At least everything is painted and cleaned. Nearly done, thankfully.
