Restoring a Creepy Clown Bank

Restoring a Creepy Clown Bank

Rescue & Restore does a great job taking rusty old items and making them good as new. But given just how creepy this mechanical clown bank is, maybe it was better left in the junk heap. We could totally see a horror movie starting this way, then the bank comes to life and kills anyone who attempts to take the coins inside.

Not too long ago, we got to see a rusty old Tonka dump truck restored to its former glory. Not to be outdone by Odd Tinkering, fellow restoration expert Rescue & Restore worked his magic on a similarly distressed Tonka tow truck, and it’s just as satisfying to watch.

There are few things more satisfying than watching old, rusted out objects made good as new by talented restoration artists. In this clip from Odd Tinkering, he takes a 1970’s era Tonka toy dump truck, and gives the yellow plaything a fresh new lease on life. Scrubbing off the old paint looks like a particularly satisfying task.

Rescue & Restore found an old metal toy piano rusting away in a barn, then carefully disassembled it, satisfyingly sandblasted off the rust, powder-coated it, and cleaned and restored its mechanism – which was basically a xylophone with keys. The resulting restoration is quite impressive.

My Mechanics picked up a beat-up old Gressel bench vise that was encrusted with decades of rust, and basically immovable. With the help of a custom jig, and hours of cleaning, filing, sandblasting, and painting, he was able to make the tool as good as new.

DiesInEveryFilm Customs found a beat-up, rusty old helmet from the World War II era, and decided to restore it to its former glory. It took crazy amounts of sanding to get it smooth and clean, but the end result is quite impressive. Sandpaper ASMR ahead.
