2021.04.17 - Workshop Apex Repair Part 5

Just a quick update on the apex repair. A crane will be arriving Monday to lift the capping Into place and since the weather forecast doesn't show any rain for the next few days, I decided to take the tarpaulins out of the workshop today.

This is the tarpaulin covered lathe...

...and part of the wood store.

Here is the reason why those two tarpaulins are necessary.

This is the main tarpaulin over the centre of the workshop.

Here we are with the tarpaulins removed. Notice how much lighter the workshop is without these.

However, the tarpaulins have not been able to prevent some damage as you can see on the lathe bed...

...and the chuck. Fortunately, a soft wire brush to remove the worst followed by some rust remover/preventer has improved the situation no end.
