Oh my!!! Wonder what a 3 jay chuck is lol. And why can't people mask stuff off. Like the chuck and lead screw perhaps. Or just take it off lol

What a mess! Now some buyer is going to have to strip all that paint off.

Pretty disappointing!!

Should have gone ahead and used primer/filler on the ways to build up any worn areas.

Hah....

Coming from that source, anyone who buys it had better COUNT ON taking it apart to clean out the crap of the ages which is still likely in all parts of the machine.... Swarf, grinding dust, rust, jellied oil, whatever. The excess paint will get knocked off in the process...............

I doubt you need to worry one little bit about getting the paint off the "wrong" areas..... Do you REALLY THINK that clueless machine-flipper CLEANED the oil etc off? I bet most of that paint was already jumping, sliding, and variously falling off the oil and swarf that is under it as the oaf took the picture.

I think he should be offering the 1200 to anyone that will haul it to the junk
yard.

$1200 means it was the Crack he smoked that made him do it.

Thats not factory paint? I thought that is how they come new and the paint just wears off.

LMAO!!!! So true!!!!! I used to work for a strip mine out fit. They had machines repainted every 10,000 hours when the motor was rebuilt. Everything got painted, belts hoses and some of the glass too!!! Sorry to go off topic

It helps the hydraulic cylinders to seal better if you paint the shafts...

The international engine in our 86 ford was like that too. For years I thought the lines between the injectors were steel...

Yup, I'd rather have a paint covering than a rust covering.

He probably painted over the rust. Everybody wins!

It's not a bona fide Rustoleum rebuild -- he didn't use blue.

Look at the bright side, he probably didn't clean it first, so the paint will just wipe right off.

The fact is, if a buyer intended to do a restoration at all, the paint would be stripped anyway. The rattle-can crapola on that lathe will not make a difference.
