So a couple of months back, you may recall this Craftsman combo square followed me home...working on it a bit here, bit there, finally got it presentable... About the only place not heavily rusted was where the head had sat for decades.... Before it all went into the Evap-O-Rust tank. I had hit the worst of the scale with a slow speed brass wheel. Heavy rusting and pitting on the head surfaces Ta-da...sorry for the poor lighting; discoloration (rust looking) is the reflection off my rust red t-shirt. A lot of lapping on my sharpening plate first with 100g, 220g, 320g, 400g, wet or dry...all was done dry. The head is cast steel The pitting here also is present on the face side; not sure but might have partially been a casting flaw/blow-out when cast. It cleaned up pretty nice...wish I had some machinist greying to coat the surface While i was at it I finished cleaning this one too. You might recall what it originally looked like (one with red zip tie) holding the square head made in Taiwan...turns out the blade is marked Made in U.S.A., No.1270 M F Co. (Millers-Falls). I added the bottom head; no name or markings but seemed appropriate for this blade. Thanks for looking...last one out please turn off the lights.
