Cole 3KCC auction find

Attended a live auction today and went home with a Cole 3KCC automatic key machine. Everything works. It's a little dirty and grimy and with rust but I'll get that taken care of with fine steel wool and emery cloth and a soaking in cider vinegar. Cutting wheel is sharp. I'll take off the motor and wheel shaft along with the carriage and clean the base. I won't get at it for a several days but will post pics of the 'after'. After buyer's fee and tax, I spent < $31.

Here is the 'after' pics of the 3KCC. I used Rustoleum gloss and flat black. Not painting hood.
