Under pressure

Under pressureFred has stuck with it, continuing to help on Lady Jane.

At present Fred has taken on the job of rust busting, using a selection of rust chipping tools.

It's not always possible to reach into some of the tighter spaces with a chipping hammer, so here Fred is experimenting with my pressure washer. It takes the paint and rust flakes off ok, but does not seem to get the tough rust out.

The search for the ideal rust removal tool continues. The current favourite being a masonry chisel on the end of a broom stick (more duct tape).

There is no doubt that I would not be nearly as far along with priming on Lady Jane without Fred's help.
