    Finish the top coat on the main body of the mill. I had a problem when rolling out the final coat, the foam roller was leaving small air bubbles on some of the areas on the mill. so i gave it a light sanding with 800 grit sandpaper and use some fine automotive cut and polish.

    Done the first coat of primer on the knee. Went out and got one of those airless spray guns, WOW it did the job really well and took me 5 minutes to paint. I will get most of the parts degrease and prep for painting.

    I finally got the knee painted and the other parts and fitted back on the main body of the mill, i replace the two thrust bearings with new ones and found the shaft is bent will machine a new one once the mill is up and running. I'll get some new Flush Grease Zerk Nipple Fittings as i can not push oil through some of them. Next is cleaning and panting the drive motor and saddle and gearbox.
