I am fairly new to this group and have not made many posts, so I am not sure
if I have attained such worthiness required to effectively gloat... but I'm
Just bought several machines (all in fine working condition, but for rust
etc) from a local gentleman, selling because he is moving:
Craftsman 113.20650 6-1/8" jointer (1970ish) for $35.
Ryobi AP10 Planer for $40 (10 years old).
Craftsman 113.23800 12" lathe (1970ish) complete with a cabinet and 9
Craftsman lathe tools (i.e. gouges, etc) for $75.
My shop contained just a compound miter saw and a nice table saw (a General
650), so I consider this a nice haul to outfit the shop for just $150. Even
if I need to upgrade later, these tools will get me started now, and I'm
sure with satisfaction.
I plan to restore the jointer and the lathe, but I have not done any such
kind of thing before. Can anyone tell me the kinds of paint (primer and
finish) that are used on such restoration projects? I currently do not own
an air compressor, so are spray-can paints suitable?
