Metal cutter refurbishment

Our old metal cutter has been refurbished. 80 years of rust sanded off, painted and sharpened blades. Now it cuts as new!

I also added a large steel sheet as counter weight.

It's funny to see that everything was hand crafted, the nuts have an off center hole and are asymmetrical. Unfortunately I don't have any before pictures, but believe me when I say that it was barely recognizable as one. The large steel sheet (over 20kg) was also from a 30 year old project I saved from the dumpster.

A few pictures of the drilling, threading and constructing:
