  • I'm Blind! (Eby Auction :) )

    Look what some safety manager did to this poor Covel! They found matching mounting feet though

      Well it sure is colorful.
      But if it is done for safety reasons I am under the impression that the color scheme is suppose to be:
      Green for any non-moving part.
      Yellow for any moving part and
      Red for all controls.

        OMG! The entire shop was painted that color?! I would be nauseous working in a shop like that

          At least it appears to have been painted by someone who had an idea of what they were doing. It is not slobbered with blue paint on all surfaces like a lot of the eBay machines are.

                        I was in a shop once in Texas where all the machines were painted a pale green with orange trim on all handles and knobs . I looked kind of nice with every thing matching and not having each machine a different color.
                        Worked in a shop one time owner said each employ could paint the machine he ran. any color buy gray or green . I painted the Bridgeport I ran Pink and Aqua Blue.
