Thanks, I know the colour is original, just wonder why the colour change, as
I have a Bridgeport with a 2J2 head that's grey, an MDI that's grey, but a
Tom Senior that's green, and a varihead Bridgeport which is, as you say,
light green. I'm convinced it was only the "period" that gave us this
"treat" to brighten the workshop. I just got rid of an A & S horizontal
that's grey, but the older No2 Automill was green. At the end of the day,
who cares as long as the machine works, just curious
It may also have had something to do with the BS paint standards. BS381C and
BS4800 were the two preferred schemes for UK industry, and possibly the light
green was introduced and everyone had a pop at it?
