    I like it too. I reckon it's a great no-fuss paint for machines.

    The colour is called Pale Eucalypt from the Taubmans range. I think White Knight might be owned by Taubmans. I originally wanted to use a hammer finish paint to help conceal some of the roughness of the castings but Bunnings didnít have any green hammer finish paint and the ones they did have couldnít be tinted, they only came in pre tinted colours. I like the way the rust guard is turning out so a good result in the end. Iíll paint over the yellow stand with the leftover green paint after the lathe is painted.

    Wattyl have hammer finish you have to go to their industrial range if you want it tinted, they have a about 15 premixed colours in Hammer finish.
    Taubmans and White Night are both owned by American company PPG.

    Sorry about the request for pictures -- I seem to hit the wrong button when trying to say thank you for the information...

    All the best with the restoration.

    Here are some of the measurements I took yesterday. Most measurements were taken with vernier calipers which have a metric and imperial scale but I have a very difficult time making out the graduations on the imperial side. The lines are a little bit to close together for me to clearly see, so I measured everything in metric and then convert to imperial. Given the age of the machine I am assuming everything on it is imperial.

    Bar length: 17.5Ē
    Bar distance apart: 1-7/8Ē between bars
    Bar diameter: 28.5mm (approx 1-1/8Ē)
    Swing: 3.5Ē (I figured this would be roughly in a half inch increment so didnít measure precisely)
    Leadscrew: 17.1mm (0.673Ē 43/64Ē ?) 10TPI.
    Spindle Hole: 13.5mm (0.531Ē, 34/64Ē)
    Spindle Thread: 1Ē, 10TPI
    Distance between centres: I donít have any centres, or any tooling for that matter. The distance between the face of the chuck and the face of the tailstock in its fully retracted position is just over 14Ē. However, I donít know if the chuck is original.
    Distance from end of spindle to face of tailstock in fully retracted position: 15-1/4Ē

    Forgive my ignorance if I donít use correct terminology, itís my first lathe and the learning curve is steep.
    cheers
    David
