The HLV_B is getting to the point where I should be thinking about cleaning the stand, head and bed and giving them a lick of paint. I don't know what color it should be.
Ok, I know that Hardinge lathes came as standard in "Gray 7B", What I would like to know is whether anyone knows an equivalent RAL number shade or similar that I could obtain in the UK. I think the spooks would get excited if I tried to get a couple of quarts airmailed to me from the USA!
I could just paint it in a similar colour to the other tools in the workshop, but that might get boring. I won't leave it the colour that it is, because it is being rebuilt using parts from three separate machines and they are all different colours... where the paint is left, that is..
Mark Rand (help me or the lathe gets pink paint! ) RTFM
