I saw that one too.I was going to send a message to ask what happened? Baldwin park is a pretty druggie area out here so its probably the same paint they sniff.

I wonder if they were able to pack the bearings with paint when they dipped the whole thing just to make sure it was completely destroyed?

Hmmm …. with no motor I might be able to hook it up to a treadle. How fast do these things need to turn?

“lightly used by the Tin Man…..” This Tin man is so stupid hes singing “If I only had a brain”

Looks like theres so many runs in that paint that it would have to be stripped again prior to being able to make anything flat-ish

Should have painted it Gold. Would have made it worth more.

I’ve never seen a chrome jointer before.

I guess once he started spraying paint the fumes took over.
That’s why you always want to paint in a well ventilated area. :>/

I notice the paint can shaker in the photo. I think he used it to apply the paint.

Which reminds me of my long dead uncle, a hobbiest woodworker, who back in the early 1950’s decided to mix a gallon of paint using a bent up coat hanger chucked in his drill press. He forgot to change the speed which was set on high. Every time I went over to his shop when I was a young teenager I saw the result . . . a circle of paint that continued completely around the walls of the shop and across every machine in the way!
