Thank you. I only use oil and it is the same oil as the cutting oil. Good luck with your machine.
Hy, Very nice restoration of your sharp agathon, I'm restoring the same model. What do you use oil? or fat? for the slide bar and toolholder?best regards Olivie
Thank you for the fine compliments. I use a lot of emery paper, rotating steel brush and polishing paste. And many hours of work.
Wonderful job! How are you restoring the brilliant finish on non-painted surfaces such as the spindle nose, handles, dials?
