Restoration antique hair clipper (Restore it project) | Lovely

Lovely restoration of an antique, old horse hair clipper. I’ve bought this quite antique hair clipper at a garage sale and i really wanted to restore it.
This is my third video restoring an old rusty object and then uploading the video on youtube, i’m always learning new skills on how to restore or how to refurbish rusty things and so my next projects might concern as well old rusty tools to be restored and brought back to new life.

Although i’m not a pro i really enjoy doing restoration stuff, restoring objects brings back to new life something which was, usually, extensively used in the past, which has history with it and that’s quite fascinating to me!
So i really hope you enjoy this restoration video and like it so i can get some more motivation, so please if you do enjoy it subscribe to the restore it project channel and give me a thumb up!
Any comment welcome and much appreciated!

I’ve been told from the seller that this antique rusty horse hair clipper is from the beginning of the 20th century (1900 – 1920) and for its age it was in very good shape, nevertheless i decided to give it a light restoration in order to remove some rust and add it to my personal restore it project collection. In the end i’m fairly happy with this restoration.
The seller was also quite happy to know that i was going to restore it and asked me how i was going to refurbish it… if you’re watching the video now you know how to restore it 🙂

    Can you demonstrate servicing techniques of optical instruments used in Physics laboratories ?



  30. Deena on January 4, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I had to stop watching.. you seem determined to seriously injure yourself? You nearly ripped a hand off catching metal on the chuck using the wire brush in the bench drill.. and the lathe with the nuts! That is so irresponsibly dangerous it’s unbelievable. You Tube ‘ fame’ isn’t worth it!



  31. Grandpas Treasure on January 4, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Nice

  36. خالد الوهيبي on January 4, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Nice job ! I like restoring things too but it looks like it’s a God’s gift to some people, for others (like me) i’m more like “Wreck it Ralf !”



  37. Ezequiel Orquin on January 4, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Pedazo de pelotudo,hiciste una restauracion del orto,hubieras colocado o echo una nueva cuchilla,la que limpiaste no tiene filo

    Don’t quit your day job.



  42. Zach Frjelich on January 4, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Hope you wore a face shield for sanding in the lathe. Those nuts come out they’ll give you summer teeth for sure



  43. Lone Spirit Of The Night on January 4, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    A dip into some por-15 etching solution wouldn’t have hurt either.



  44. Carlos Figueroa on January 4, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Bad bad
