You can read about it here. But, you my bl***ing Friends will get to see never-before-seen-footage of hubby (actually BEING Bob Vila).
If my Stitchery Friends have come this far to read further about me, then they, too - will get the unedited version of how hubby brought vinegar-Bernina back to life.
A dremmel tool with the R I G H T attachment (not just any old one will do). Yes, hubby had to buy a special one for buffing and polishing... here he is... I just love him!
Before and After
I didn't take any photos of the corrosion or rust (just couldn't bring myself to photograph disgust), but the attachment on the right is how shiny things were ORIGINALLY - and the attachment on the left is how shiny Hubby was able to make the metal pieces after getting rid of all the disgust.
So, we definitely classified it as "almost-the-way-it-was" condition.
He's good, ain't he!??!! I'm so proud of my Hubby. Don't know what I'd do without him.
P.S. Thanks to my regular visitors for checking back and waiting for me to post again. I've been SUPER busy with eBaying and then this last weekend I went on a scrapbook-get-away... My sister-in-law and I meet halfway between our homes (150 miles apart) at a hotel and scrapbook for two nights - it's awesome and very relaxing!
