toolate2

My daughter bought this at a local yard sale a few years back. Last year we finally got around to refinishing it. I think it came out great! Probably dates from around 1935-1945?? What do you think?

    toolate2, I have two of these gliders. They should out last me. Yours looks really great.

    What did you do to refinish it? I have an old iron pully, it has a patent date of like 1860 on it. I want to refinish it too

    Well, we completely stripped it down to bare metal. I bondoed some rusty areas, and then we primed and painted it. Be careful though when you're working with stuff like this as the old paint most likely contains lead... Thanks for the love guys!

    Thanks too late! the pully i have is completely covered in rust but still solid. Im not sure how to get all that rust cleaned before I can prime and paint it

    Thanks for the memories! I set on a couple of these during my childhood. With my greatgrandfather drinking iced tea and my grandmother snapping beans. You did a great job on this one. It looks really nice.
