LeBlond Paint Color

Does anyone have the paint code for LeBlond Servoshift lathes? I have a 1964
that has been repainted a non-original color and want to repaint it. The
color under the covers looks to be a more blue gray than the Bridgeport
machine tool gray. I am considering having paint tinted to match the color
under the covers, but it seems a little stained from all the years of oils
and dirt. Also what is the best type of paint to use?
Thanks in advance,
Jeff Borning

We were still casting (and painting) old style LeBlond bed parts into the 1990's. The paint we used (and still do) was Sherwin-Williams. Back then many of the paints were polanes. If you contact the Sherwin-Williams inductrial coatings and paint distributor in Cincinnati, and ask for Doug K., he may know the exact color and be able to sell you a gallon.

I used to work with a guy who said, "You can paint machine tools any color you want as long as it is gray." Randy
