Painted and ready to re-assemble!

Painted and ready to re-assemble!

The nameplate (also holds the roller arms in place). I’m using a satin black (gloss was too shiny for me- this looks older.) Someday all the parts will look like this, with nice shining metal parts, and maybe some gold and red decoration, depending on how long it takes to get this baby working again. Although I don’t think C&P’s had any decorative painting, someone please correct me if I’m wrong and send pictures 🙂

The other newest addition to the shop is a hundred-year-old foil stamping press, which just needs a little cleaning and a sturdy table built to hold it. Gold-foil coasters, anyone?
