Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I've had this since 1971. The original finish had gotten worn away, so I finished it with pine tar and BLO, Finnish style.

Hoping to see other pics.

I'm a sucker for the pine tar finish. It just looks more natural than the pretty,shiny verathane coatings.
