Not a miracle, just hard work

a few weeks ago i spend a cold and stormy fall weekend in our workshop fixing an old Paschal Raster formwork element. It was really really in a bad shap. Crap actually.
The result is not what we actually try to advertise, we are just using this formwork for marketing purposes and i thought i can also use some practical experience with how bad exactly formwork can look and how much work goes into fixing it.
First i took off the old plywood. Then the frame got introduced to my angle grinder. A few layer of paint after some foundation and then a new plywood board.
Since then, the element has seen a few pours of concrete again and is getting back to its original look soon...
