I posted this in the Old Iron forum as well, but wanted to add it here too.

I plan on repainting my lathe that my grandpa made sometime in the late 70s/early 80s and I'm wondering on what type of paint to use. I will use a wire brush on a grinder and by hand as well as some hand sanding....prime and then paint. Would a few cans of rustoleum (sp?) work well for this? I think their dark machine gray would make it look good. Any help would be appreciated. I attached a pic for those that haven't been over in the spinny forum. Thanks, Jeff
