After a month of terrible delivery problems, I am getting spoiled rotten with new (old) stuff arriving daily! This time it's a 1942 model Paasche AB, complete with the original tools, case and receipt. (purchased in '45). Sadly no manual, but... the seller was kind enough to include a quick release adapter to modern hoses. Good, because my three existing Paasche hoses don't quite fit without leaking a lot, but the adapter works with my existing quick release couplers. It was caked with decades old ink which seems to have protected it, because after a 3 rounds with the ultrasonic, and a bit of TLC with some metal polish and q-tips, it came out sparkling with just the tiniest amount of corrosion on the inner bottom edge of the ink well. Even the needle was in excellent condition once I freed it from being welded on to the cam with old paint. It sprays well, but certainly need some tuning. Going to get into the cam driver, give it a good soak, clean and lube over the weekend. I may consider re-dying the faded velvet when I go in to clean up the oxidization inside the case (under the top satin cover), but I kind of like it the way it is. May just leave it be. Happy as a clam. Two beautiful brushes for the collection in as many days. A rare treat!
