Those scratches on the mating surface of the crankcase look like a PO's gorilla attempt at removing the old gasket. Are they very deep or are there ridges?

I reckon you're right there. No ridges, slight gouges, nothing too terrible though. I'll probably take it in to the machine shop when I get the rest of it done and let them decide.

Having a look over everything else though, it all seems to be in good order. I'm thinking perhaps he never actually got it running again. All the bearings/gears etc look good. I'll go over them with a fine tooth comb when I've got it all cleaned up and before I put it back together, but so far the damage actually looks pretty minimal.

That looks cool. What'd that come from originally?

Right, where were we before the great crash of December '14...?

The light was originally some kind of automobile carbide lamp, but there are no plates or makers marks etc to try and find out exactly what it's from. Looked like this originally though:



Also made some progress on the gauge backs:



I think that was it!

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about wood accents on a steampunk theme but those are coming out beautifully.

Thanks guys, after 14 coats I think it's time to stop with the varnishing and let it all cure for a few weeks.. in the meantime: Let there be light!
