Latest video:
Restoring ultra rusty old steel cabinets for the lathe equipment and bolts and nuts by wire brushing the rust off, cleaning with a solvent and painting with air compressor powered spray paint gun. Most problematic was cleaning out the cabinets from the stuff that was in there and later putting everything back in and organized in the machine shop. Decision after decision... But painting projects gives a weird satisfaction - this project might start a trend...

As I always say, better than new. Excellent job, they don't make them like they use to.

Painting over rust is NOT restoring !! You will see when the rust comes back. Then you can start again. - Nonsens!!

as a hardcore lover of patina and all things old, this was hard to watch (so was seeing the old doors disappear a couple of episodes ago). love the series, look forward to more!

I hope at some time if you haven't already done it, so you making those cabinets. Those contain more machine tools than big shops. some are hand built. Even a walk around would be good for us old machine shop workers. What a tool set!

the first cabnet was not worth restoring the cost of paint primer and time not worthit. but the secan was worth it the secand is more of a rare hard to get collactable cabnet worth a great abount of money. yes if you sold the first cabnet after restoring you could get $25 for it but the secand if dun right and the cabnet was in great shape still you would be able to sell it for around $500

Those swinging shelves are nice. How much did that cabinet weight? It’s coming along.

The one with swinging shelves weighed a ton. Not literally but it was freaking heavy.

Please don't forget to wear eye protection when using wire wheels, I had a wire shoot right to wards my eye ball and deflected into my eye brow, so I got away lucky.
Hey Donn, you really are getting things done around there. Bet that makes Papa proud to see what is being done to the place. Keep up the good work and videos and thanks for sharing with us.

These are very practical, but makes the cabinet really heavy. We struggled quite a bit when heaving the cabinet outside and back in when it was finished. :D

God I am horrible at this. LMAO well it’s not that I am horrible it’s more like I forgot I was even doing the project and forget to put it away.

That's right. Although I'm kind of a slob when it comes to that and have a rather photographic memory when finding tools out of a heap of junk on the work table that has accumulated over several projects. But I'm going to change and try to keep everything organized in the future. It just feels better to be in the workshop when everything is in its place.

What paint did u use? What durable metal paint for equipment and other stuff is available here in Estonia u guys recommend? Or u just use clear coat to get durable surface?

Maybe someone could answer your question. I'm dumb when it comes to paint. I rarely paint things. :D

that second cabinet is extremely cool/ useful, would definetly be interested in a DIY build of a similar design after your garage is done.. or maybe just some close up picks of the hinge design for the drawers so i can attempt a build.. i expect a new one is in the 1500USD or more range if you can even find
Donn DIY

The hinge is made out of a tube that has another tube in it. Each shelf has a short piece welded to it and all the shelves have plastic bushings between them so they're quiet when in motion. And a smaller diameter tube runs all the way from the top to the bottom of the cabinet through those shelves and thus, the shelves can swivel. Really simple and effective design.

I will clean the surrounding area of the existing "big" lathe and try to lift it up by 15-20 cm so it'll be flush or higher than the new floor that get's poured in. I could repaint the lathe but I don't think I will completely disassemble it and restore it in the nearest future since it works good as it is. I have other projects in my mind.

Them swing-out shelves are freaking awesome, I have never seen anything like it :)

Donn DIY Aasta tagasi
With the small lathe I bought that I showed in one of the vids in this series I also bought a "new" used work bench that has these exact same swing out shelves. So that'll come in handy once I get it in place after the floor is poured in.

Kui on niiske, siis tuleb rooste tagasi- kraabi teda palju tahad. Roostemuunduriga oleks hea enne värvimist üle võõbata. Ise tegin suurema metallipinna puhtaks Kärcheri survepesuriga millele torkasin otsa liivapritsi adapteri- vesi jahutab metalli ja liiv samal ajal tõmbab värvi ning rooste maha.

On selliseid värve mis stabiliseerivad rooste. Teknos Ferrex, hammerite ja rustoleum... Kuigi ega need just kõige paremad värvid pole. Peab päris puhtaks nühkima. Kust sellise survepesuri liivapritsi ostsid?
