Was curious if I could find a Grizzly touch up paint color that would match a Geetech jointer I own.

Since OWWm.org site does catalog information on non-US made wood working tools, touch up colors can be hard to find for off brand, now antique Taiwan made wood working tools.

Ended up digging out this paint color summary in Grizzly parts catalog that I thought might be nice to share:

Grizzly PPAINT-1 – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023S
Grizzly PPAINT-1A – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023S AEROSOL 4.25OZ
Grizzly PPAINT-2 – MEDIUM GREEN REF G9036 V1
Grizzly PPAINT-3 – DARK GREEN REF G4000
Grizzly PPAINT-4 – OLIVE GREEN REF G4008 G4009
Grizzly PPAINT-5 – AQUA GREEN REF G9860
Grizzly PPAINT-6 – DEEP GREEN REF G8145
Grizzly PPAINT-7 – GLOSSY BLACK
Grizzly PPAINT-8 – GREY REF O/S G4015
Grizzly PPAINT-9 – DARK GREY REF S/F MOBILE BASES
Grizzly PPAINT-10 – LIGHT GREY REF G9733
Grizzly PPAINT-11 – GREY PUTTY REF G0504
Grizzly PPAINT-12 – SHOP FOX OFF WHITE REF G9970 G9971
Grizzly PPAINT-13 – SHOP FOX CREAM WHITE REF G4790
Grizzly PPAINT-14 – BEIGE REF G0555
Grizzly PPAINT-14A – BEIGE REF G0555 AEROSOL 4.25OZ
Grizzly PPAINT-15 – YELLOW REF G5772
Grizzly PPAINT-16 – RED REF TOOL BOXES

If you search for ‘PPAINT-XXX’, replacing XXX with number above, you find these paints on Grizzly web site. Unless it says AEROSOL, the images appear to be half pint sized cans of enamel paint made by Sherwin Williams Industrial paint group, all selling for ~$6 each.

Note:
For you JET owners looking for off white paint, according to WHM Group trademark infringement lawsuit the Shop Fox off white color is same? Grizzly half pints are < $6 .vs. $35 for spray can of MP-16. :-0)

Hope this helps.

PS – don’t bother posting about getting a color match from some supplier. Yes, you can get any major paint supplier to color match many colors. In my experience it takes several tries to get right, especially when working from aged machine parts.
Most of time you have to buy a qt or more of industrial enamel, and it will set you back $30+, not to mention a lot of time.
If the color is metal flake, or hammer tone, and you need to buy automotive paint, and it’s even more expensive. Buying the minimum quart of paint, and required custom reducer/thinner (gallon sizes only) will set you back for $60-$100.
BTDTGTTS :-(

Thanks for the post. Most of the equipment I have is Grizzly. Never thought about touching up the paint on my equipment. When I do need to this is a great resource. Thanks so much!
