... I didn’t get to work on my project today. But I was able to pay it a visit anyway.

The darker green is the bracket that I painted with Rust-o-lium. The color is called Verde Green with a “Hammered” finish. It looks nice but it is not a perfect match to the original Unisaw color.

The color changes slightly depending on the light. Sometimes it looks like a good match, sometimes not.

The Rust-Oleum verde is a closer match to Powermatic. I have found that the Rust-oleum smoke gray #7786 is much closwer to the original color. If you want to get a perfect match try this

You’ll never notice the slight color difference once it’s covered in saw dust. Good luck!

I hope you get to work on the saw today. I am sure you are anxious to finish this project and get the saw in your shop.

Thanks to all for your advice and comments.

I thought about the fact that once it was covered in sawdust I wouldn’t notice the color difference. And I actually like the Verde Green color a little better too, but I HAVE to restore it to as close to original as I can. It’s just the way I am (I joined a Chevy Avalanche truck club and they nicknamed me “What’s Wrong With Stock?”).

I guess it like a tick. Anyway, that’s why I ordered the original belts instead of link belts even though everything I have read about them says they are better.

Yeah Scott, how do you like your SawStop?
