Block Removal

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

This block has to go! For one thing, I don't think they had Robertson head screws in the 1920's. For another, it doesn't fit very well.

Yup, I'm going to chisel it off.

Almost done!

Aaahh, that feels better already. I'll use a scraper next.

A bit more scraping tomorrow and the block will be ready to receive a new overlay.
