Got an old 800-B. The finish is dull, dirty and chipped. What's the best way to go about re-finishing it? Will I have to completely dissasemble it or can I just mask off everything I don't want painted? Thinking about the "hammered" finish in spray cans. Will this adhere and hold up? Thanks.

If it looks that bad, it probably needs more than just a paint job.

I'd send it to Whiz White for a tune up and then think about the paint job.

Pat, I rebuilt it myself and it's loading great....I just want it to look as good as it loads!

timberfaller, a "small fee" might mean something else to you, but I'm thinking about $10 of spray paint and masking tape!

Someone out there must have done this before?

If you are contemplating sending it back to the factory (1) get a turn-around time, and (2) a quote. I think that you would not want to return an 800B.

I'm also thinking that they no longer refurb 800B and 800C machiens.

I'd remove all the tooling, sand blast it and have someone powder coat it.

Leave well enough alone. If you have to do something, get a can of Krylon spray paint and give it a coat or two. HMB

They make an epoxy Krinkel (sp)?? spray paint that closely mimics the factory finish.. Most Home Depot will have it in stock.. Maybe a hobby shop.. Then you'll need to fine splatter a grey paint over it..if you want to go that far..Thick paint in a air brush with high pressure can do that for you.. Good luck.. Mike
