Just curious as to what other people use when restoring their machines? Could be a useful resource to share, perhaps? I am no mechanic, so I'm thinking a thread where people could get hints for their first restoration.
My Atco Standard really needs to be done properly (It sat in a barn for 25-odd years after I nearly finished it first time round), so I've got a guinea pig (when I get a mo...)
So first questions - what do people use to remove paint and corrosion? Chemicals? Abrasives and elbow grease? Or local blasters? And how much do they pay for them?
What about blacking cylinders? What's out there that looks good and is heatproof?
I'm sure I'll think of more...
