Almost Done!

My case is almost done and I am very happy with the results.  A final sanding an one more coat of semi glass minwax and she will be good to go.  I am sorry I did not include the tray in this process.  It still has the (phew) smell no matter what I have tried.  Maybe if I beg and plead hard enough I can get it done too.....  Hubby has been traveling and then we had the Holiday so it took longer then expected.    However I am not taking it anywhere so who cares!  Here are the pics.  Please leave me comments!  I am keeping the original handle as it is still in pretty good condition.  When hubby is all done I will clean off all the metal parts and polish up.

What a sweet man you are married too! He worked so hard on your case and now it is phew free! Great job and pats on the back all around. Most of all, thank you for sharing your process with us. Hugs, Allison in Plano TX USA

Your case looks wonderful! I bought my first featherweight a few months ago on the last day of an estate sale for $75!! But the case and machine really stunk, so my husband is almost finished sanding it, I can't wait for him to stain it. We bought some kerosene to clean the machine but I am a little nervous about using it. Does it leave a smell, do you have to wash the kerosene off the machine?

It looks beautiful!

Did you ever get the smell out of your machine? Cleaning the drip pan and replacing the felt works wonders.
