I recently picked up a DuPont Model E from a nearby blacksmith who is also a member of a guild I am. He had it in his shop for a while with a plan to restore it/go through it but never got around to it.
It was originally rigged for a line shaft. The fellow had bought quite a few things to rig it for a jack shaft, but not everything.
I decided to start video documenting it and posting it to youtube because I have never done anything like this before, and I’m looking to the community of blacksmiths for assistance with it - I’m also happy to answer any other questions people may have as I learn more and more.
So without further ado… Here is the youtube video
And my question to you all - have you ever restored a die before? How did you do it?
