Bill, if/when you dismantle for cleaning, please show us how it is made.....
Hey Gluehand, I have the unit toally apart and cleaned. I'll try and get some paint this week.
Will post some photos of the parts tomorrow for you to see.
The quality of the older stuff is nothing short of amazing as with most items on this planet with some age to them.
I'm pretty sure that goes for people too.

Thanks for the pics Bill...it looks great..!
As I mentioned, until I read the specifications, I had no idea that this unit is geared...interesting...!
That seems to be the original prop/shaft as well.

Happy "hammeriting"..!
