    After a good wire brushing a piece of chalk can make impressions stand out for easy reading some times.

    Yea.... I ran into a few variations on that theme when I was searching for info. Some guys would just shake flour on it and wipe it off...others would give it a quick blast with a fluorescent orange spray bomb and wipe with a rag while it was still wet. Unfortunately most of my letters appear to have been beaten into submission by a large hammer and won't be coming home any time soon.

Either the original builder was light with the stamps, or my grandfather was a pretty bad aim (which would explain a few things...). And you're right, that looks almost identical to my "before" pic, but your chips aren't as bad as the one that wasn't visible in my picture. I like your stand...might have to copy that some day. I should have reshot that pic in the sunlight, it looks really gross in that ugly blue color... thankfully in real life it isn't that bad.

    After reading these this morning, went out and gave it a quick brush with the wire wheel. Still nothing visible.
    After the Christmas rush is over, I'll spend some more time at it and give it a good brushing.

    Thanks

    I'm betting that if anything is left, it will be the old English weight markings... they should be 3 numbers in a row closer to the base. Anything closer to the top was in the road of wild flying hammers.
