In this video I'm restoring a very unique looking antique italian coffee grinder. I recieved this coffee grinder a few weeks ago as a gift from a subscriber from Italy. He sent me a picture of it, asking me if I want it on Instagram and I said yes immediately. I really liked the unique look of it and its design.
At first I thought this would be a very simple straight forward project. It would soon turn out how wrong I was. The two big wooden parts became a real challenge to restore. It would be rather easy to make new ones, but I really wanted to keep the original ones and restore them. As the bottom piece was warped a lot and was also 3mm oval I couldn't just machine it all clean right away, otherwise I would need to take off way to much material. I decided to try to bend it back flat by soaking in water for a day and than clamp it flat and let it dry. Fortunately my plan worked out and the pice got almost flat again, to my surprise it also became round again within 0.5mm. The reliefed stress made a few cracks appear. I filled them all with a mix of epoxy glue and sawdust. After that I was able to machine it nicely and didn't loose to much on its original size.
The wooden top was rather easy to restore compared to the bottom. Because it had a very loose fit in the body, I decided to machine that diameter clean and glue on a sleeve. That worked very well and then I just had to remake the slots in the sleeve with my rotary tool by following the existing ones.
The color choice was also quite a difficult task on this project. I changed my mind a few times and even repainted the body. First I painted the outside in corn yellow, but that looked very bad with the dark wood. After alot of thinking I decided to püaint it in light ivory, which in my opinion was the absolute correct decission. It matches the dark wood very nice and also works nicely together with the gold.
Overall I'm very happy how this coffee grinder turned out.

I hope you like my work and the video.

Then, after months and months of efforts, as the restorer was about to finally put together the coffee grinder, someone sneaked in and reveled to him that you actually can get a pound of ground coffee at the grocery store for about $6:50. The restorer was silent for a while... He started mumbling about the stupid choices he had made in his life. He left and was never heard of again. It's been rumored he is now a hit man for the mafia. The end

Why are you using paint stripper before sandblasting? is ther ea differenc ein what they are supposed to do (i.e. removing the rust)? Same with cleaning with aceton, vinegar or Electrolytic cleaning. How do you choose what to use and in which order (in case more techniques are used on the same part).
my mechanics
my mechanics Před 6 dny
Sandblasting media is very expensive and it turns bad a lot faster when there's a lot of dirt or old paint in it.

Hey can I ask why you use the wire brush before you do the media blasting? Wouldnt the media blast just take everything off? Genuinely really curious, I have always wanted to try stuff like this!
my mechanics
my mechanics Před 12 dny
Vickie Bligh
Vickie Bligh Před 14 dny
The wire brush is to help get the paint off. The type of media blaster he uses recirculates the material and paint degrades the media and clogs the nozzle. So that's why paint stripping and wire brushing before media blasting.

@fantasystaples uwu Yes I do know what ASMR is. MM put that on his titles as requested by his followers. As I said, your mileage may vary.
