Started the teardown of the mackissic shredder attachment I picked up last summer

 

Going to get all new hammers as these have been used on both sides.

Fairly simple unit , the hardest thing was getting the heavily rusted steel pulleys off those ended up getting cut off ;)

Nice project I remember when I restored the two that I own. They are pretty simple units to work on. They are great for making compost that's what I use mine for.

Eager to see the results, did you manage to get all the decals reproduced?

I gave mine a refresh (slowing the rust) but I plan on using it... So didn't go to far.

My decal is different there.
Huh. I'll see if I can get a pic of that for you

Can't wait to see this one done. I love these old decals especially the Indians head. I know the process wouldn't be authentic but has anyone ever had a print shop clean up a decal pic then laminate it. Once applied clear coat the whole area. Just a thought.

You'll probably have to find someone that specializes in custom silkscreen printed decals. The Indian logo behind the white lettering is likely the problem he's having. With screen printed decals, it can be printed one layer (one color) at a time with amazing detail.

Here is mine

They have some pretty small stuff I'm surprised they can't do it.  I bought from them in the past but never had them reproduce anything.

Any points where it had rusted through and had to be repaired?

 

I'm envious, I'd love to have one. I have a lot of willows, which prune themselves regularly; plus all the garden and yard waste.
