It is a Beautiful Thing

I installed the pitman rod today.  It is so pretty. 
The balance wheel, the foot pedal and the skirt guard all look so good compared to the irons.  I think that when I retire I will just pull this whole thing apart and redo the irons.  The timber is pretty good. 
It does need some work on the veneer.  I tried the warm iron on top of wax paper, cardboard and a soft cloth.  It didn't work.
