  • JET machine paint, what type is it

    I have lucked into a JET horizontal bandsaw.

    It needs a major cleaning, bearings and some TLC. So, I have the thing apart and started to clean it.

    I have noticed that for the most part the paint is not so bad. But I do not like the white color and there are areas that are badly chipped up. Plus, a guy marked it with a big splotch of yellow paint that I can't remove without removing the base paint.

    So, with it apart and clean, now would be a good time to paint it.

    Does anyone know what type paint they used? I want to spray over what is there now because it is holding and would keep me from stripping the whole thing down. I only want to make sure that the paint I buy to cover is compatiable with whats there from the factory.

    Thanks JG

    I'd check with Jet.

    They included a small can of touch up paint with some of my Jet machines. Maybe they'd send you one or two.

      The can I have is covered in Chinese scrip and smells like dead fish so I couldn't tell ya. Spray it with an epoxy primer first then it won't matter.

          jfsmith - I need enough that I should probably just squirt the entire thing. It was heavly used since 2000. Today I will be hammering the pan out so that it will drain the coolant back into the sump.

          I would think that 1/2 quart would cover it. Too bad Shirman Williams only sells gallons of the industrial epoxy. I might break down and buy a gal and only mix a portion of it. I wanted to give SW a try to see what I thought. I was not impressed with the Rustoleum I tried a few weeks ago. Its still a little gummy.

            Rock,

            Benjamin Moore still sells their industrial quality paint in quart sizes – will custom color mix it if needed. I don’t know how it equates to the SW brand though. You might check it out if you have a dealer in your area.
