Well gave it a go wont be using that method again lol bloody dangerous and it gobbled me wire brush in no time think ill stick to a drill with a wire brush in the end.
Anyway now all stripped down apart from the main shaft which since it all turns nice and smooth will leave it as is will just give it a dam good clean and strip back to bare metal, will need to make a couple of new cross members due to one of them being badly bent and the othe being in two bits and also need to make a cover plate for the axel bearings so not to bad will do some pics tomorrow as to dark now

Northern softie, us southerners use the stubble on our chins but it was giving me a nasty rash hence using the angle grinder

Right quick update templates made for all the missing bits which i dropped off at the Aquajet guy this afternoon going to make all the parts for 30 quid so no too bad going to be made out of 6mm steel which will tie in with the raised beading along the bottom, also managed to repair the breaks that where in one of the legs quick weld job then skimmed over with some liquid weld, have also now decided on the finish guess what its going to get the blackner treatment just love the colour of that cast iron base seems a shame to cover it up with paint lol
