There are nice spray jobs and then there are nice spray jobs this guy doesn't recognize the need when spraying for masking tape http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gifAlistair

Hey, be fair. He did leave some of the rust showing. And the local fire department is looking for that can of paint.

My bid $1.00 and he pays the shipping ..... and for a crew to unload it.

John can't you see it's red? what's wrong with you? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gifAlistair

Look you guys are just upset he's a trend setter and it will be the rage here next spring. When the fed safety people see that the will mandate all machines with moving part or parts be painted that color. You know the euro's are always first ROTFHMSLOL http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Sir John- or should I say, Johannes?

I was simply flexing my German- Ein Kleine.

Rot in sauerkraut- is Red.

Gott in Himmel!

Here was me, trying to bring a bit of culture to this intelllectual wilderness.

Never mind, eh?

The masking tape probably wouldn't stick to the rust http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif.but if you have no lathe,it might still be worth a look.

"Rot in sauerkraut- is Red."

Except that it is called blaukraut. Go figure.

I blame Goebbels. He could convince a nation.

If we are not careful, we will have Billy Boy asking why it turns from blue to red with acetic acid.

Oh, the agony of it all!

Has somebody we know been diving on the Tirpitz?

12-06-2005, 07:01 PM
Do you think the painter used this machine?
I should see if he can paint my car (rust and all)

Hard to believe it actually looks better now than it did before he started. That's the usual reason to paint something !!

12-06-2005, 07:26 PM
Well I'm pissed. He missed painting the yellow stick ruler.
But I still want it.
The belt is now part of the matching ensemble http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
The pallet is a perfect match also.
What more do you want?

12-06-2005, 07:36 PM
It matches his paint sprayer http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

You guys missed the point of his technique. The most effective paint job is that which will cover and protect all the exposed surfaces so that the evil demon RUST cannot get a foothold to attack. It must be defeated at all costs. It is WAR.

He did miss a few handles and part of the lead screw though. It obviously needs a second coat.

12-07-2005, 08:41 PM
somebody thought it was good, for he has a positive rating.... I think. Either that, or there are a lot of fans of RED out there...

Positive Bewertungen: 99,8%

I was always impressed by German craftsmanship...until now.

I mean, seriously, he didnt even bother to move the carriage to spray the rest of the leadscrew.

Love the Q&A:


Frage: Hallo, warum haben Sie die denn tauchlackiert? Kriegt man den Kram wieder ab??? Gruss, Stirlingtechnik

Antwort: Sieht auf den Bildern schlimmer aus als es ist!


Question: Hallo, why did you dip/immersion paint it? Will that crap come off??? Regards, Stirlingtecknik

Answer: It looks worse on the pictures than it really is!

I guess people dont like red paint.

12-09-2005, 06:16 PM
I had nothing to do with it...

Have any of you used the new red rust preventative. This stuff is great, prevents rust from forming, easy to remove after years of storage and seals all wear surfaces on any originally machined surface. Its called, HIDE EVERYTHING AND LOOK UGLY. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
