I've got a South Bend lathe and a Bridgeport mill in my shop. It's amazing how handy they are. I run mills and lathes every day at work, so I'm not real interested in using them when I get home, but it's sure nice to have them.

Congratulations - you'd be surprised how the floors will clean up with some citrus peel degreaser and a floor scrubber. Once clean you can decide next steps, grind and polish would look great.

Thanks guys!

Jake, what brand degreaser do you recommend? I have used the Zep purple degreaser on a stained driveway, and was thinking about picking up a few gallons, but the fumes are pretty intense. Would be nice to have a citrusy alternative....

Zep has a citrus degreaser. I use it all the time on my preservation projects or really anything I am cleaning. Link below

Wow, Tony!! Wow!!

I had years of oil on my floors and the epoxy guys ground it down and coated it in the gray hangar floor color for my liking. I need to have them come back after all the grinding and welding is done on the 507 to just clean it up a little. I’ll be building an extension on for fabrication later this year. Lifetime warranty against lifting too. Whatever you do, don’t do it yourself. That takes precious time away from cars which now you have the space for.

We should start a Yenk.Net garage show there where we all get cameo roles

Good on ya!!

Cheers
Dave

I will get a product spec for you from our cleaning guys - I've just always known it as Citrus Peel - but when I google that nothing comes up.

EDIT- It's Orange Peel
