Just put some stripping jelly on the base tonight with a good scouring first. Scoured it after the jelly sat for awhile. Then I with my ROS I took some sandpaper discs out of retirement from the shop floor and removed what I could with them. I’ll probably do it all again tomorrow and hit up the inside some too as well as work on the top.

I want to get the base finished and then worry about the tough part (leveling the beds and setting the knives).

Getting a little more excited now that I have some time to work on it, and I’ll really like to have it for my next project. Thanks for looking.

Looking forward to seeing your process, progress & project of/from this “Old Iron”!!!!

I thought maybe the “Stripper Soaking” picture was going to be a little more risque!!
