Singer Restoration Sunday - Stripping off the old paint
Here is the Model 66 I'm working on, with most of the rust and old paint removed.
I removed this much with an electric drill sander, using 60-80 grit sandpaper. Next week, I will use my sandblaster to get at the harder-to-reach parts (like the inside of the throat and the underside).
