Punishment Drill

Common sense dictates I don't leave half finished parts of a project skulling about the workshop, but rather that if I have workshop time I should seize it for cutting the other half of my dovetails. Common sense is mis-named - round here it can be a rare sighting indeed...

Rather a lot left to do, but a modicum of progress visible. Rust removal isn't going to take the time - it's the removal of decades-worth of grease and oil that's proving hard work. Even now all the small pices are soaking in an effort to shift it with a little more ease.

  1. Alf,

    It looks fine already. How do you remove the decenny's grease? I know it can be that chewy... I love those old tools just having that look as they were being used and cared of. It brings me to the times of our ancestors. Thanks for that.
