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.
