Re: Brass Lamp covers

This may not be the answer to your question but it is what works for me. First, let me state that I actually DO like polishing brass.

Re: Jones Speedometer

Sorry, but to answer your question I haven't gotten the ring around the glass removed yet. I was going to try my oil filter wrench but it is just a bit too small to get it around the bezel.

Re: Jones Speedometer

Thanks Pete.

My next challenge is trying to get it unscrewed. Applied some penetrating oil but so far it hasn't budged. Might see if I can locate a strap wrench to remove it.

Original engine color for a 1908 EMF

The paint color from an earlier restoration was a semi-gloss black. I want to have them repainted however I have tried to determine the correct ori...
