Well I've seen others success stories but I am still impressed. These are pics of an old No-06 handed down back in 2007. It sat in a tool cabinet on a shelf waiting to see if I would try to revive it.

This is after setting overnight in a tub of Evap-o-rust. I haven't even given it any TLC yet. Who knew there was paint under all that?
Speaking of TLC, the knob and tote are toast but, I'll limp along with them till I find out if this thing is worth putting some serious effort into. Whadda ya think of this lever cap? Can I just grind those nibbles out? Should I bother?
