Bar clamps restoration

Share it with your friends Like

I received this bar clamps from a good friend, and I wished to revive them and use them as a result of this clamp are actually sturdy and I prefer to revive previous instruments and put them to work.
First I start to loosen up all of the transferring items and for that I needed to take away the rust so I used a propane torch, some WD40 and a hammer.
After that I used a wire cup brush on an angle grinder to take away tha rust from the remainder of clamp.
I made the deal with from a bit of pear wooden on an “improvised lathe” and formed with a flap disc on the angle grinder. I completed the handles with bees wax and linseed oil.
I made the lacking swivel cap from a bit of flat metal, a 10 M nut and a 6M washer and weled them along with MIG welder.
I paint the forged iron jaws with purple automotive paint so it wont rust.
After that I used contact cement to attach some items of leather-based so it wont destroy the floor of the wooden while you clamp it.

I would have tried a real penetration oil before heating, WD-40 just doesn't do the job very well.
