My newly purchased SP-15 is now moved into its new home and I’ve been able to take a close look at it for the first time (I bought it based only on photos so couldn’t see all details). It looks to be in very good shape (no rust or dents) with no major parts missing. It also came with tools and roller setting gauge, which is nice. However, it has obviously not been used for some years and unfortunately was not kept covered so it is full of dust inside everywhere. I think many parts, if not all, will need to be removed for a very thorough cleaning before its operational state can be fully assessed. As a novice, this is a little daunting as I’m not particularly mechanically-minded. I do have the owner’s manual and have read everything about maintenance recommended here and elsewhere. Still, I’m hesitating before taking the plunge. I’d much appreciate any general advice about undertaking this project. Thanks!
