Well it was warm enough to paint so I let it fly. This is about 1/3 of the stuff I need painted. I'm also hopefully going to be buying the remaining items I need from Dutch soon. Just waiting for my uncle to pay me.

I've been busy lately but made time to do some paint and wood working.

One dilemma I had is that originally the hand crank was riveted on, but if you want to use the belt pulley it must be removed and vise versa. Well the rivet I bought was too long anyway and I found this ancient cotter pin, so I plan on drilling a hole in the rivet to make a removable pin that will look period correct. I also need to get the fan belt pulley drilled and tapped hopefully this won't be expensive.

Here's a little update. Not sure if anyone really follows this thread but here it goes. I'm currently getting very close to being done. I got another coat of green I only have a couple things left that need a coat of paint such as my flywheel which I got in April. Wood is 80℅ complete I just need to put in the fan, find somewhere to buy a 4x4 poplar block cut and put that in and paint/nail. I also need to paint all the iron that is red some of which is at the machine shop.

Also discovered that this is a very late model because it has the threaded fan shaft used from 28-31.

Thanks for looking,

Not sure if many people follow this thread but I'm sure there is a few watching.

Got all the wood first coated on one side. Everything is getting two coats/how many ever coats it needs and sanded in between coats. Last picture is the bottom piece of steel for the cob elevator primed. That is also red along with the fan, fan bearings, and idlers for the cob elevator chain. I'm hoping to have the wood done before I go back to school so I can put back together as soon as I come back in May.

Thanks,
Tim

I know a couple guys follow this. Painting the other side now. I have more time so hopefully I can complete it this summer. My goal is to have it completed by the 4th.
