This machine took a surprising amount of time to restore considering how basic of a machine it is, but the final product was well worth it.

I decided to make a matching WDT tool

Oh wow ... you did a fantastic job! I have the same brass model, by the way. Thank you - you just motivated me to get polishing mine (I know, I'm bad lol). Its completely refurbished but looks a little ugly because I haven't addressed the brass.

Thank you! I was not looking forward to polishing the brass because I was afraid of how long it was going to take. My friend turned me on to Wrights Copper Cream (Works great on brass as well) and I was amazed how quick it went. It took me around two hours to polish the entire machine.
