That may be the last resort along with a foot powder bath.
Had some Mastercam books that came from a smokers house, must have been a 4 pack a day smoker ended up placing the books in a bag and heavily powder the books with foot powder from a 99 cent store, worked on books.

a,b)
Been using my degreaser full strength found out letting my fan guard soak for an hour will remove the paint.
side note: also will etch aluminum turning it black.

b)
rinsing with water leads to steel flash-rusting.

c)
Metalprep works well to remove medium to lite rust, the key is to wipe it dry with paper towels, if you use water it will flash-rust.

d)
once the Metalprep dried I used Gray rust-oleum primer.
its going to be a while before I finish paint, the Sun only comes out a few hours a day.


e,f)
The degreaser I purchased in 2005 eBay.
Campbell Hausfeld Heavy-Duty Degreaser
Contains: Sodium Metasilicate.

g)
Metalprep also purchased about 2005, was only available at automotive paint suppliers, some will call it metal conditioner.
Metalprep
Contains:
Phosphoric Acid
Glycol Ethers.

Not sure how to clean the motor coil, Thinking about submerging the coil in a bucket of gasoline for an hour, I assume it will not damage the varnish on the wire.
Its not that I need to get it spotless but need to get rid of the smell, maybe I should buy that crap they been selling on TV.

But first mark the wires with the appropriate numbers.
I use wire number markers then clear heat shrink tubing, pretty much waterproof.

After water, saliva and soapy water (w/Ajax orange dish soap in it), it is one of the weaker "solvents" I use. Example: old toothbrush wet with Windex to scrub dirt of the HVAC vents in a car. Dry with a paper towel then lightly blow dry with air...

A good washing with a no too close pressure washer might do the trick. Let it sit out in the sun for a few day to dry out or in an oven at about 200 degrees F will dry it out.

A quick search turned this up on some varnish baking temps. https://what-when-how.com/electric-m...ectric-motors/

We did this type operation at the motor shop I worked at right out of high school. That has been a few days ago.

I have been working on the lathe just haven't had time to post up dates.

Thank you for the suggestions.
still have to clean the motors coil its been placed on the bottom of the to do list.

I don't know much about Ammonia, I did purchase some to try out of curiosity.

Scotts I'm with you.
Ideally I would like to Bake the coil dry, I don't have an oven that I am willing to try maybe a 500 watt halogen work light.

****
This Lathe has quite a few small Roll pins, in the past I had problems removing and installing them mainly 1/8" and smaller, figured I would search Ebay for punch sets.

Purchased one set of Roll punches for $12.19
They seem to work good, removed the pins without any issues.

Also
Two Roll Pin Starter Punch Sets from different sellers, both sets had the wrong sizes that were in the Ebay listings so they refunded my money and I kept the sets.

1, 2, 3) the lathe bed cleaned up nicely fit in a 5gal bucket then flipped it around for the other end.

4) taped the ways with some heavy duty sticky 3M Duct Tape.
5, 6) inside the bed I brushed in Rust Neutralizer/converter.
7) Took the advise from midmo and purchased Rust-Oleum Primer.
8, 9) Painted.

A fire restoration company I worked for briefly used Nilodor in a 2 gallon sprayer to get rid of smoke smell. Seemed to work on some stuff.

Lightly charred and smoke stained wood framing was spray painted with a sealing primer like Kilz.

Hard plastic objects were wiped down with a natural sponge treated with something I can’t remember.

That will work,

Once you get the end bells off, you could cover the one end with aluminum foil and shine the 500 watt halogen heater light generator and that will take care of that fairly quick.

Lathe is looking good!!!
