    Hal, Thanks for the compliment. Unfortunately, I got some orange peel, which was a bummer after all the prep work. One day, if I'm bored, maybe I'll do a light sanding job and try again. I had most...

    You might want to remove the build data plate before you get too far along. The rivet looking fastens are a lot like nails and come out fairly easily. I wish that I'd done that on my machine. I took...

    I agree that taking it down to bare metal should be avoided, assuming that the underlying paint is sound. My base was OK, but my headstock was a mess. Here's some of the things that I went through...

    Did the files you uploaded have a .JPEG extension by any chance? You need to change the extension to .JPG prior to upload, or they won't load a the best size. (It's a peculiarity of the...
