I discovered PB Blaster on this thread and it is now a permanent part of the VSM restoration effort at my house. There are so many resources out there, there is no excuse to let these classic machines go to the dump.

This has gone into my book marks to be recalled at a moments notice. I don't have that many older machine any more but have restored all but the last one I picked up. It is in fair condition but this will be a great help in getting to 100%. Thank you for a great learning tool.

I just finished my sample block. It still needs a bit of squaring up but IMHO looks ok. I decided not to put a circle center on the ones I am making so they will not be confused with ones that were made by an unknown artist.
