    I did eventually get all the paint and goop off. Richard i followed your advice regarding tractor paint. The only paint I could source was john deere branded. I tried brush on and spray cans. The cans left a nicer finish that seemed more durable. The main body is green and some components will be yellow as these are the inly colors available. It will look like a tractor i guess when its done. Still lots of clean up. The foot broke off when i was rolling it. It was previously jb welded on. Once its in place ill re do it and paint over. Ill start assembling what i can next weekend while im waiting for the table to come back.

    Richard, who knows were this might go but I started writing down much/many of my grinding thoughts and techniques . Agree there are many old salts here who could do the same, but I am doing it. So far close to 30 pages and with photos or sketches likely 40 pages. Likely double that number down the pike. Who knows a pamphlet or a book might result.

    I picked up my parts from the machine repair shop. Ill post some pics later. I reassembled the column and spindle. I removed all the grease and dirt then coated the ways with way oil prior to assembling. Im pretty sure I have all the parts for my one shot oiler. Once i repaint the table pieces I should be ready to fully assemble. I still need to grab some grease fittings from mcmaster carr.

    I installed the oiler and i have some questions. 2 of the hoses terminate into holes in the housing for different spindles that do not seem to reach the actual spindle. It seems to only reach the putside of the pivot bushing. The other spindle hole goes all the way to the spindle. It is a different style. When i fill the two channels with oil it does not seem to go down. I am wondering if maybe there is a small hole i cant see that serves to lubricate the shafts or maybe the bushings rotated somehow. Is this normal? When i use the oiler these two channels only seem to overflow and make a mess. Am I missing something? When i took it apart this is where the lines were terminated. Im not sure if they were oem or not. Thanks.

    Could you post a few close-ups? If you get the light hitting it at the right angle we can better see what was done.
