Hi all, glad to see the site up & running again. I hope this post finds everyone doing well. I finished my very first H81B bottle stack restoration and wanted to share my results. I hand polished and then sealed the captive link system, the gate levers, the master link and the bottle gates and rollers. Added new springs and new SS spring pins in the bottle gate rollers. I had the face plate, the back channel and the vend shelves powder coated. A big thanks to Slapshot for his wonderful help and continued encouragement to keep me confident that I could do this. I didn't even know how to remove the stack from the machine until I talked with Jared. Also thanks to the other folks that have provided help & support! I couldn't have done this without you!

Whow!!! That looks fantastic!

The bottle rack is always one of the trickiest parts to take apart & reassemble, But the result speak for themselves
