They Were Headed for the Junk Pile!

Here are pictures of two pieces that I was able to salvage from
the junk yard.

The old drill press was complete, but very dirty from lying back
in the corner of the shop for years. The owner said it was heading
for the junk yard, so I was able to buy it from him.

The Champion forge blower was in three different piles. I was
able to find all of the piles and establish that they all belonged
together, and then I bought all three piles. The original belts
were even there.

I enjoyed disassembly, blasting, painting and reassembly, plus
the end result. Both are good show pieces, along with my old hit
and miss engines.
