Restoring vintage gear requires a high level of skill, experience, and knowledge - we've covered a few examples of this during the past year. In the video above, Vintage King shows the restoration process of a Fairchild 670 - also know as the 'King of Compressors'. It outlines the testing involved, the required cosmetic changes, and internal component replacement.
The inside of the machine looks absolutely glorious, and the exterior finishes up looking similarly impressive! Later in the video, the unit is tested and calibrated to ensure it works as it should - adding a brand new front panel to make it look the part. Amazing job!
