Some elbow grease was used and after almost half an hour, I've a shiny piece standing in front of me.
From the experience removing the dried grease on the Wabeco mill, I found using WD40 with an old toothbrush work better than WD40 with a piece of rag. It still took me some time to reach within gaps a tight spots to clean out the unwanted stuff.
The feet in front of the mill. This is one of the 4 I bought to install on the mill. But I was advised against using this.
The DRO with glass scales are on the list of things to buy for the mill. I'll run through the installation process in my head to see if I am up to installing the scales on the mill.
That's all for now. Hopefully more to come soon.
