Todays Project - What did you do today?
Some folks say boiling it in a mixture of 3 cups of water, 1 cup vinegar and some table salt works....

Easy enough to try, even if it doesn't work. Or you can try soaking it in "Tarn-X" but not for more than 2 minutes before rinsing very well in water.

Read that one last night, may give it a try but not sure about the smell of boiling vinegar in the house this time of year.
Free advice is worth exactly what you payed for it.

Citric acid (available in home brewing supply places) will take the tarnish off. Be sure to rinse well afterwards.
Full of ideas, but slow to produce parts

Don't have an immediate need for one but decided to build a sine plate. 
Has been a fun project holding tight tolerances. 
6 x 6 with 1 inch hardened ground shafting for the hinge and roll.
Got it with 2 tenths of flat and the rolls within half a thou of 5 inch spacing.

Thats the next step but need to figure out a strap to hold it down. It needs a curve to stay below the top surface.

Wanted to make a batch of sour kraut but dread shredding the cabbage, usually takes hours.
Made a shredder. Had some 1/2 inch poly for the body and 3/4 for the sides and stop. The knife was an old straight edge, think its ferritic stainless, seams tough and took a beautiful edge.

Works like a charm, will reduce a head of cabbage to shreds in about a minute. It would love to reduce a finger too though.

Also whipped up a pounder to pack it into the pail.

Should have a batch in about a month.

Nice job on the shredder. Thumbsup
 
Makes my mouth water just thinking about the kraut. Do you cook it with kielbasa or pork shoulder?

Want to try canning some this time. Bought a pressure cooker to do fish, thought maybe sour kraut too.

You're right about that finger.  My Dad, who was a meat cutter by trade, had one thumb about 1/8" shorter than the other.  Meat saw took the tip.
