Jet Mini Lathe Re-furb
While Sue was busy with the garden other than supervise I was slowly
digging out the Jet Mini VS lathe from its storage box. Dismantled all
the parts so a full re-spray could be done. It had been packed into a
Gal tool box back in March 2016 a light spray of WD40 wrapped in rags
for protection during the move. It was bought in 2006 so had seen a lot
of work and was looking rather untidy, no amount of cleaning would
remove finish stains without removing some of what I believe to have
been lead based paint. Every time no matter what as used it would come
up with a grey residue.
Bearings and belt were still good so were re-used.
I have yet to contact Jet Australia for new Decals.
