great thread and even greater Mrs. and kids
So, mind sharing the process you use for getting those old bits sparkling again?
Thanks mate. I think the kids think ive lost the plot, but thankfully the Misses does understand.....SHE GETS ME SHE GETS MY BIKES....!!!
As for the polishing, i seem to spend every waking minute these days polishing old bicycle components....
but i suppose it reduces the costs of the builds, and keeps the old kit from the scrap heap.
Originally i used the polishing machine i made from old washing machine parts, but sadly at the beginning of the year the motor packed up, and i have struggled ever since, so i had to bite the bullet, and revert to using a cheap bench grinder that i modified to use polishing mops.......and to be fair for a very cheap quick fix, it ticks the boxes perfectly well, and for around £60.00 all in, it cuts down on the work and time involved and saves my aging hands.
Pic one, the old faithful, pic two the new quick fix.
Other than the polisher, all thats needed is a tin of Brasso.
