Again, long time since updates.

Made some sheet metal lower doors yesterday and started painting the base.

Please keep in mind, this is a budget rebuild, long term plan is to buy original parts here and there that will be used to do a 100% resto.

If the weather stays nice I may have time to put it all back together by the end of the weekend.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL.

Rough assembly. Top needs to be switched around to properly line up rods. Conduits still to be put on and wiring for globe run.

Thanks guys. It is not perfect by any means but I am very happy with it so far. You have to pass my shop to get to our house build site. Have had a couple offers to buy it already but it isn't going anywhere until I am gone to the big gas station in the sky. One contractor even asked if I would restore his 1950s clothes wringer, told him I am no expert and only work on my own stuff. Will take a few pics of my Pop's Tok 39 today. Got it mostly broken down this week.
