Restoration work performed :
Huge thanks to fellow AFCA members Kim Frank for the correct motor tag. Ted Kaczor for the brand new hand made cage, and Darryl Hudson for the new rubber feet.
- Complete disassembly of motor, base, switch, speed coil.
- Clean and de-grease all parts.
- Sandblasted all cast iron parts
- Repair rear casting broken rib with plastic form cut from Tupperware bowl, covered in JB weld, then hand carved and shaped to match rest of ribs.
- Cast iron parts primed, then painted with Rustoleum premium gloss black. Paint baked in home made paint booth and space heater at 100-120 degrees for 24 hours. This resulted in a nice hard, clear, blemish free finish. Not bad for rattle can paint.
- Painted stator dark orange to make it visible from inside casing.
- Cleaned and reconnected speed coil and switch to stator.
- Cleaned and buffed all brass hardware to mirror finish.
- Cleaned fan blades with 800 wet sand to remove old brown lacquer coating.
