So I a few months ago I got a hold of this awesome table, and have been working on it nights and weekends to get it restored to it's full potential.

It was covered in glue, paint, grime and all sorts of other impurities that had built up over the past five or six decades.

You can look at my old posts to see the original thread I posted, and the one on my progress.

Here are a couple pics of the before, and a bunch of the way it sits now.













Thanks for any one who sort of followed my progress. Hopefully I can pick up another piece similar to this one after I sell it for a ridiculously high amount, hahaha.

That looks pretty nice! Somebody who's into that look will love it!

I have one question. Why did you leave the angle iron on the side? It seems a bit unsafe for non-industrial use.

Nice restore, looks great. One question- could those wheels have come with a rubber tire? The flanges suggest they were equipped with some kind of tire.

I honestly didn't even considering removing them. I am trying to keep it as original as possible. I have used the sides as handholds while flipping the table top over which is quite heavy and it didn't hurt my hands. I also don't know if it helping with the integrity of the top either, what do you think?

As I recall, these normally have FLAT hard rubber strips wrapping such. approx. 1/2" thick, but hard.

They did have some rubber strips glued on, but I haven't been able to find replacements so I just left them off.

Just go to one of the BOX stores, and ask if they have any hard or semi-hard rubber that you could cut up.

I'm sure you can find something, and when you cut to install, don't butt join, rather cut at a long taper, so when rolling the joint is less pronounced.

I wish you well,
