Well here it is all broken down into it's pieces. I spent more time on the flywheel and main drive gear removal than all the rest of the time getting #448 torn apart. What you see here is just over 70 pieces. Seems like a lot more, but that's all. Now if you start counting all the bolts and screws and take the rest of the items apart that are still together in this picture you get just under 200 pieces. Each and every piece will be cleaned and restored. Some will get sand blasted, some will get wire brushed. All depends on if the items can handle being sandblasted.

Flywheel is 40 inches

Here is the main body of the press with all parts removed. Empty, greasy, and rusty. When I pulled the springs out of there things got a little scary. Remember to be very careful when taking these springs out, there is still lots of energy stored in them. Some sort of spring compressor would help.
