Restoring Old Rusty Table Fan with Laser Cleaning

Odd Tinkering

In this episode I will restore this rusty vintage fan. The fan has lots of rust and all of the wiring needs to be replaced. This project was lot of work because there were so many phases in the work. After disassembly I started by removing the rust and paint with Laser Cleaner. The device wan loaned to me by W2M (https://w2m.fi/?lang=en). Here is their demo video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkTA7xWR0XI&t=182s&ab_channel=W2MLaser). For the safety guard I used electrolysis for which I've made this tutorial: https://youtu.be/SYMsGTKFaas For the painted parts I used filler and filler base coat. The color is blue metallic car paint, and it was coated with 2K clear coat to protect the surface. To remake the damaged badge prints I used heat transfer. Should I make a detailed tutorial of the process for my second channel? I printed the wanted image on a transfer paper which is linked in the tools section. It normally requires a heat press, but since I don't have one I only used normal oven and used clamps to generate the needed pressure. I also used silicone pad to make the pressure more even in case my sheets of plywood were not even enough. I also replaced all the wiring vintage style braided wire was used for the part that had similar wire and the rest of the wire was just plain plastic wire like it originally was.
