    Hi warsztat0dZera

    A very nice job indeed!

    I see you used WD-40 for some of the degreasing. But what was the solution in the spray bottle? Did you battle to find seals for the headstock? I have a Colchester that must be refurbished. I've got oil leaking from the headstock gearbox.

    Regards,
