Recently I bought a set of 6 used Brown & Sharpe mikes covering the 6" ~ 12" range. They have carbide faces, and are beautiful instruments, almost like new with one exception. Somebody had painted 3 dots about 3/4" in diameter on each one -- a white dot, a red dot, and a green one.
I'd like to get rid of the dots by repainting the mikes. The original paint was black wrinkle paint and I would like to use that if it's a good idea. Need your advice and tips in following areas:
1. Would you remove the original wrinkle paint? If so, what would be the best way?
2. Would you use wrinkle paint? If so, what brand of paint would you use to get good chip and abrasion resistance? If regular paint is used, what do you recommend?
3. Is powdercoating possible? Advisable?
THANK YOU very much
