        How often does the air filter in the painting area need to be changed?

          I have a coin box from a pay phone from the same period. It would probably look beautiful if similarly restored

            When I was a kid, I was standing on the sidewalk in Queens NY outside of the candy store (mid to late 1970’s) and a car jumped the curb and hit a parking meter pipe and the meter and pipe slammed into the sidewalk right next to my foot and the meter shattered open and the coins flew out and everyone was grabbing coins. I was just stunned that I was inches away from my foot being smashed into a pulp by it. True story!

              is it just me or is sandblasting just so satisfying to watch?

                    What's with the red and white two-tone paint treatment? Why didn't he repaint it with the original dark gray metallic glossy finish, which was the Duncan OEM paint?

                      There is nothing more satisfying than the sandblasting portions of this guy's videos. I could watch that all day.

                                                      If I owned a sandblaster, I would sandblast everything including the cat. It would not end well but it would be very satisfying.

                                                      One of the best parts of these videos is not only do we see things brought back to like new condition but we also get to see how they work. I was wondering if you'd take the clock mechanism apart. You did exactly what I would have done. It's working? Leave it alone. At most I'd blow any dust out of it, (CAREFULLY) and lubed it. Nothing else. Too delicate to mess with.

                                                                                            Mr. Rescue & Restore looks like Edd China in the following aspects:

                                                                                            *Edd China wears orange gloves; Rescue & Restore wears black gloves.
                                                                                            *Both are excellent mechanical parts restoration craftsmen: China refarding to cars and Rescue & Restore about rusted toys.

                                                                                            One difference:
                                                                                            *Edd China is shown on a TV show. Rescue & Restore prefers to keep a low profile.

                                                                                            Another? Maybe their nationality: China is an English man . Is Rescue & Restore an American one?

                                                                                            Greetings from Venezuela.

                                                                                            El señor Rescue & Restore se parece a Edd China en los siguientes aspectos:

                                                                                            *Edd China usa guantes color naranja; Rescue & Restore usa guantes negros.
                                                                                            *Ambos son excelentes artesanos de la restauración de piezas mecánicas: China de los automóviles y Rescue & Restore de juguetes oxidados.

                                                                                            Una diferencia:
                                                                                            *Edd China se exhibe en un programa de TV. Rescue & Restore prefiere mantener un bajo perfil.

                                                                                            ¿Otra? Quizá la nacionalidad:
                                                                                            *China es inglés. Rescue & Restore ¿es estadounidense?

                                                                                            Saludos desde Venezuela.
