Well, you all know about my catastrophe regarding the Bernina sewing machine... Well, it feels like a miracle! Carmon rejuvenated the vinegar-Bernina to "almost" the condition it was before.
Using a dremmel tool with a buffing and polishing attachment and he was able to take what would have been a totally ruined machine and make it shiny again! We still would NEVER recommend vinegar, but at least the Bernina 830 wasn't destroyed.
Before and After
I didn't take any photos of the corrosion or rust (just couldn't bring myself to photograph it all, but now I think that perhaps I should have just so you could see how bad it truly was), but the attachment foot on the right is how shiny things were ORIGINALLY - and the attachment on the left is how shiny Carmon was able to make the metal pieces after getting rid of all the surface damage.
So, we definitely classified it as "almost-the-way-it-was" condition. He's good, ain't he!??!! I'm so proud of my husband. Don't know what I'd do without him.
P.S. Thanks to my regular visitors for checking back and waiting for me to post again. I've been SUPER busy with eBaying and then this last weekend I went on a scrapbook-get-away... My sister-in-law and I meet halfway between our homes (150 miles apart) at a hotel and scrapbook for two nights - it's wonderful to catch up and very relaxing!
