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?

That’s hilarious that you can see all the other tools he blasted with paint in the same picture!

“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!
