    Great job Brad!
    I really think you got it. I reall had no intention of restoring my "new" 10L but, now I'm kind of undecided. I have to partially tear it down to check everything and replace felts, etc. anyway so.....
    Has anybody sprayed this paint or, are all you guys using a brush? I can't imagine brushing the entire cabinet, chip pan. Great color!

    Brad did good.

    Anyone want the Farrell-Calhoun number to this I just spent a couple hours with that guy and he nailed it down perfect till we could only discern the halo edge where he mixed their deal and painted to the top of the Sherwin williams patch.

    It's an industrial exterior marine grade polyurethane and when it sets up finally as its oil base it gets hard a Supermans head on a thursday, resistant to alot of chemicals, acids and gasolines. Easily applied by brush also.

    I'll add the FC Formula to the mix tomorrow, and you guys can all give Brad the credit for it.

    A lot of parts, I did one coat, but a super thick coat. The others, I did two.

    Thanks for the formula. I have about a half dozen SBs of one type or another. Not a one of them has the same paint. So it is great to have something to use without being torn off in a bunch of directions. I had one that was blue green, and it sold itself. I wish I had scanned that one.

    For those who want options...

    Farrell-Calhoun paint numbers.
    This is an exact match to Brads Sherwin-Williams number.

    This is for 1 quart.
    #857 Neutral Base Marine Grade Polyurethane
    B-Y5
    C-28
    F-Y
    KX-Y24

    This is a marine grade polyurethane paint oil base. It takes a pretty good while to cure. Not in 2 hours more like 48. It brushes beautifully or it can be thinned down and sprayed. It will set up like steel afterwards though. I have used this paint many times before on numerous other projects. This is in fact what I'll be using on my lathe here shortly . I will be tearing it down and beginning the tedious process of stripping painting and reassembling soon. Will take pictures.

    I just hope it turns out as well as Brads lathe did.

    I gotta say I'm really loving this Sherwin Williams paint. I'm now using a 1/2 bush that I love. As long as the finish holds up I'm going be be very happy with this project.

    What are you thinning this with? I'd like to spray mine through a hvlp gun.

    Are you priming the cast iron first?
