Question Painting tools, spray paint

I've acquired some older and in some places, rusty tools, sheet metal specifically. I'm asking for recommendations for spray paint that is tough and durable and that will hold up when it gets a lot of wood traffic across it. For instance the steel side tables on a tablesaw.

Thanks,

Jack

Jack; some of the best products aren't available at retail. If you have a large paint distributor reasonably close to you, check out their Industrial paint section. Also, places like Acklands (Grainger).
Personally, I'd be looking at epoxy finishes.

Someone who worked at the coast told me about a product that is the best for priming rusted surfaces but I can't remember the name. It might not be sold under that name there anyway. You get rid of the loose scale before you prime but don't bother to clean it down to bare metal. It actually needs some rust to bond to. It converts the rust (iron oxide) to iron sulfide which is much harder and more stable. Then you paint over it. It wouldn't be good for work surfaces but it would be good for any of the other parts. If you inquire at a store specializing in marine finishes they might know what it is. For working surfaces I would say you need to go down to bare metal.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'm familiar with this, I used it often when I was younger, now I just try to get to bare metal. It was made by Duro, and called Extend, since it was Duro Extend. Last I heard, it was bought out. I don't know who sells it now.

Could be POR (Paint Over Rust). Supposed to work very well on the underside of vehicles. Available at auto parts stores here, dunno about in Canada, or elsewhere.

I paint my power tools, but with a brush, not spray. I'm not after a showroom finish. I use bright yellow oil paint. Yellow not only adds a bit of light to the shop, and is supposed to be cheerful. Whatever, but I like it, and it has worn well so far - years.

you want to ''paint''...
you want to slide abrasive material across/over the ''paint''...
like I said.. good luck w/ that...
keep in mind that new rules have seriously changed the formulations of liquid coatings..
nothing today seems to work nearly as well as they did in yesteryear...

the paint used on commercial/military aircraft will work - for a while...
but a gallon will cost more than the total retail monies of everything you have in your shop...

the best you can hope for is a wear resistant coating... more big bucks...
VOE says epoxy paints won't last... nor marine, especially marine - big bucks for not much....

you could consult the experts...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Look for the generic name "rust converter". Wikipedia has an article on the chemistry, and Google shows many products by many manufacturers.

(Haven't figured out how to copy/paste a URL on my phone while watching a Redskins game.)
