Rusty and Broken Bench Grinder - Restoration

In this video i'm restoring a rusty and broken bench grinder.

A few weeks ago i was to flea market and after few minutes in rain and bad weather i found this cool benck grinder, was all wet and dirty.
Right away i knew that i can make a nice restoration video for you.
This rusty bench grinder costed me 15 Euro($17), and the seller warned me that it does not work because it was in the rain.
This is the reason why i didn't test it before cleaning.
When i checked inside i discovered that the capacitor was exploded and both bearings were worn.
For the painting i choose to make it yellow with polished parts.
on some parts i decide to protect them with bluing metode.
This Restoration took me 5 days to complete.
I like so much this bench grinder and will be next to my other bench grinder for display on my shelf.

I hope you like my work and my video.

    You can see why the seller replaced it rather than trying to repair. Total cost of Tysy's parts & materials to do this refurb job: $47 (not including the actual grinder @ $15). You can buy a new light duty 150mm grinder now for between $25 and $35 - of course you don't get a work of art and it will certainly not last long (they are sold as "DIY" tools after all...) but to our 21st century throwaway society that's the way it works now. It's broken? Toss it in a landfill, buy a new one made in a Chinese sweatshop by children.

    Where does that ground wire come from? i guess it does not plug in into the wall socket with that plug at the end of the cable.

    Great work as always. I always wonder (because I don’t know any better), why invest the time and labor of the wire brush first THEN MC51 and finally sand blasting? Why not go directly to sandblasting and save some time and labor? Thanks.

    Между наждачным кругом и крепежными шайбами нужно обязательно устанавливать картонные прокладки (в начале видео их видно, они были приклеены к наждачным кругам). Иначе при затягивании круг может лопнуть и при вращении осколки прилетят прямо в лоб. Круги имеют срок хранения и эксплуатации. Старые и тем более как видно из видео, отсыревшие круги использовать строжайше запрещено. И вообще смысл всего этого? Блестящий станок лучше полирует? Нужно было просто круги заменить и промасленной тряпкой протереть.

    Don't use expensive car polish on acrylic/perspex. Ordinary toothpaste will polish it just as well. It's how they remove scratches from perspex watch crystals.

    Unpopular opinion: I find sand blasting to be very unsatisfying. Just seems like it’s not so much restoring anymore as much as just taking apart, sand blast, then repainting. Not many parts that need to be hammered back to shape and hand sanding anymore (general examples) There is nothing wrong with what tysy is doing but there really isn’t anything different with each upload. They are all just the same video. And I mean I don’t blame him since the algorithm would destroy his channel if he doesn’t upload on a regular basis. Just seems like a bummer
