The school cabinet that came with the 201-2 was too far gone. The feet on the legs were rotted from sitting in mud. The veneer was peeling. The drawers, however, were good as were their frames. I salvaged them.
I also salvaged ALL OF THE HARDWARE. The knee controller has already found a new home. The big spring that helps fold down the machine into the cabinet was a bit rusty. I soaked it in vinegar and water 50/50 (my new favorite rust remover THANK YOU ANDREA) and it looks like new. I greased it up to prevent further oxidation and it is all packed away.
Steven chopped up the timber for me this morning, early. We had a chilly day here. So I warmed myself with a fire. Fueled by, you know what.
There was one very nice piece of oak, however, that I saved. I think I will use it for something. Don't know what yet. But something.
