  3. Nice restoration, Steven. What do you do to the metal parts after you soak them in Evaporust?

    Thank you. If it was a part getting painted I used a wire brush to get as much of the old loose paint off before I primed and repainted. The polished parts I started with 220 grit sandpaper and progressed up to 3000 grit, and even stropped some of them with compound. Then I used a metal polish on them, before spraying everything with CRC Technical Grade 3-36 to inhibit any corrosion.

    Did you take it apart completely ? Any good guides to this process?

    Nicely done, Steven. I restored a #2 as well, but did not disassemble completely. Will likely get after it some cold winter evening. Thanks for sharing the exploded view...that will be helpful!

    I took everything apart that I could. I have an exploded view of the drill in this post. The side knob ferrule and threads stayed together and so did the lever knob(not sure what to call it) because that shaft isn't removable. I looked at a few articles online and WK Tools' website, and winged the rest.

    I have an album of more in process photos
