I'm new to the forum and new to actually having a machine in my garage but a long time machinist. I bought a Husky 8X30 knee mill last week and I've been cleaning the years of cutting oil & gunk off of it for the last few days. At this point I'm not interested in making the machine look show room new but I want to get it cleaned up so I don't get slimed every time I use it. Besides the years of gunk on the machine, there are many places where the paint and I assume filler below the paint have chipped of (big patches actually). So my question is this, what is the process for getting the paint back somewhere near normal? I know over the years in the shop we repainted a number of Bridgeports and lathes and the paint always wrinkled up either immediately or as soon as cutting oil or coolant got on it. Is there some paint that works better than others? I'm going to be limited to brush & roller or rattle can for this job so that may limit my options. I did a couple of searches on the forum but didn't find anything on specific paints or methods. If I wasn't searching in the right sub-forums (this seemed like the place) please let me know. Thanks!
