Jet Lathe paint color?

Anyone know of a close match for the off-white color of my 10 year old 1442? Jet wants $25 for a single spray can

Is there a small part that you could take to a paint store?

The banjo would fit the bill. The tail stock also isn't very heavy on this model.

If the headstock has a drive belt access door that is Jet white in color that would be ideal because it may need to be small enough to fit in their scanner. I took a short section of baseboard to match the color and they used a chisel to remove a sliver of wood to fit in their scanner. Once upon a time, Delta felt guilty about all the problems that my lathe was causing me and they gave me a couple cans of spray paint plus all new nameplates and decals to repair some slight paint problems. Customer service was nice back then before B&D. Too bad that the lathe wasn't as nice.

John, the Rust-Oleum Biscuit Appliance Spray Epoxy #210372, available at Lowes for under $4 is a perfect match for the Jet lathe.

Thank you again, not only is the color match pretty much perfect, it's a very tough finish!

Glad to help. I am not a professional, just a retired hobbyist who has limited funds and has enjoyed woodturning since high school, class of 1970.
