Picked this up at an auction about a month ago. Believe it is from 1968. Although it was in decent shape I decided to give it the "treatment" Replaced all the bearings, new paint, and buffed up the shiny bits. Had a bit of a problem matching the old paint colour but after some advise I remembered I had some paint left over from my Poitrs jointer repaint. That on was a little too yellow so I had my wife darken it and she got a close match.

 

All on all turned out pretty well

My apologies for the size of the pics, my first post here.

Hey Gerry, that is one cool resto, I love the industrial green custom mix. It screams quality and class. Gerry, in the first before image, you show the labels above and below the General tag. Were those not salvageable? I sure liked them!

Both of those were paper labels. The printing on the top one was mostly worn off, the bottom one was just an Ontario Hydro inspection sticker.

Very nice Gerry.  Moving the electrical box to the right side was the right move.

Thanks Gerry, I wonder, since I am restoring my WT some day, what is the best way to clean a label if you want to preserve it? Without scratching it or scrubbing it off?
