« Part 3: electrolysis Part 4 of Restoring a Walker Turner BN730 Band Saw series Part 5: Almost there... »

I finally finished painting all the parts. Decided on a two color scheme with hammered black and hammered dark bronze, I may have mentioned that before. Here some pictures of how some parts look before assembly.

thanks for looking.

I have some touch up to do but I have to wait 48 hrs. Then on to assembly….cannot wait.

Man, I really like your color choices. that is going to be one really good looking bandsaw. That hammered paint is really getting popular.

Good luck getting it together.

Dang, man! I used hammertone silver and hammertone gray. Now I have to go find some hammertone black. That color scheme is awesome. BTW the original color was this awful dark olive drab. How do I know? My 1944 W/T DP has the original paint. Guess what the new colors are going to be? heh heh heh

i have to admit, I wish more colors were offered in the hammered finishes. Looks like about 10 exist for each brand and they are all similar between the brands. I like your color choices, but wish I could find an off white for one of my projects.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Hokie, I agree that off white would be a great addition to the bunch, especially for restoration purposes. It would be a nice accent color IMHO.
