I enjoy restoring things. Mister Jalopy crossed my radar some years
ago, but I was already imprinted from childhood farm life with the desire to maintain and restore.
A few of the things I have restored:
- Maple desk:
My wife rescued this one from the trash. It looks like a 1970s maple desk, beat to hell by
multiple adolescents. Stripped, sanded, stained, sealed. Cleaned the hardware. Some of the wood
is broken. I want to patch in new wood when I can match it.
- Waterford Light:
Bought off ebay. Corroded brass and shorting electrical. Sandlbasted, painted nickel, and
rewired. Now hanging in our library, where it gets compliments.
- Various old computers
- 1943 Farmall M
- 1995 Mazda MX6
- early IH wrenches
- 1940? drill press
