Rusted of antique tobacco grinder Restoration

  • Published on:  Wednesday, August 14, 2019
  • In today's video, we'll show you the renovation of an old tobacco grinder.

    This grinder I chose for you from the things I want to renovate over time. I have a mill at home for some time, I bought it at auction.
    I'll add the mill to my collection. The mill is marked PATENT size 4. 19th century antiques 1859-1873, cast iron grinders were used to produce chewing tobacco. The original patent date is August 2, 1859, ext. August, 1873. It is provided with three foot feet, each leg having an eye opening for attachment to a countertop.

    If you have some information about copper cleaning, you can share it with others on my Facebook page:


    If you have any questions about the process, use machines or other things, ask me in the comments. I try to answer everyone and as soon as possible.

    I'm sorry for my bad English, it's not my language.

    I'm uploading videos about recovering mechanical things. I'm uploading videos about restoring old wooden things.

    Share and send if you like this recovery :)

    Thanks for your advice on how to improve this channel!

    Are future projects left outside? If so it would not hurt to cover them to slow any more damage and rust occurring.

    If you are going to try to restore items you need to invest in the correct equipment to do it

    Нет, так не пойдёт. Надо переделывать. Убрать следы ковки, переделать ножи внутри, подогнать держатели ножей, заменить деревянное основание, отшлифовать внутренности до зеркала ...

    Just some constructive criticism, don't spend 1 min of an a18 min video, showing you awkwardly removing 4 mount screws.

    Gave me an idea as to how to build a debris grinder.

    What chemical is the rust remover?. Is it some sort of Phosphoric acid?.
