    Default Painting a heavy motor, and it was easier than methods used in the past.

    I left the pulley on the shaft and created a carousel.

    First mask pulley if desired.
    Then spray a flash and finish coat on the end bell next to the shaft.
    Invert motor so that pulley is on the ground.
    Rotate motor and paint the rest.

    In the past I had used a heavy block of wood with a hole drilled into it so that the inverted motor/shaft would fit and rotation would still work.

    I removed the riveted on motor plate and taped holes for small screws to install the plate again.

    I'm using DuPont ANSI 49 grey Industrial Grade (Imron from days past). I painting in a enclosed booth with what I thought was a good down draft air system.
    Turns out that if the fan is turned off I don't get fine dust and dirt on my finishes. Is there some filter material that I can sling across a 2 x 2 hole.
    I probably not going to buy another Grainger filter again.
