Did Magna use LEAD PAINT? Restoration Hazard.

#67538 by a_crowell » Tue May 25, 2010 2:39 pm

While wire brushing a greenie part I realized that it was made long before lead paint was regulated.

I enjoy restoring in my home garage shop, but am I creating lead paint dust? That would be very bad news.

Does anyone know what paint type was used for the early machines?

Yeah, it's probably lead paint. But unless you are gathering up all the particles and eating them, you should be ok. And if you are doing that, then you have other problems.

I've refurbed two 10ERs, taking each one down to bare metal with a wire brush on my grinder and I'm fine. Well, other than the third eyeball growing on my cheek. But that's nothing to be concerned about.

Man if that was the case there are a lot of us growing that third eye ball. I have done 3 ER's so far and 2 more to do. I am also looking for an old Greenie to work on and rebuild one of them later. I do a lot of sanding and wire brushing. But don't think you have anything to worry about. If there is that much in the air you should be wearing a mask for dusty work any way.
Good luck

I was doing some paint removal on a century old building that definitely had lead paint. I asked the local folks what to do with the debris and was told to put it in a box, tape it up, and place it with all the other trash/garbage.



It appears there is more 'danger' to current garbage collectors than future generations! It was headed for the 'land fill'.

If it is lead paint, then care for your kid's health

Making lead paint particles airborne and breathable is fine for the respirator protected worker, but there is danger to children that breath the dust. Kids under 6 are most vulnerable.

The new Toxic Substance Control Act kicked in April 22, 2010, to the chagrin of all renovation contractors.

I don't like to breath dust from grinding or sanding anymore. When I strip paint I use zip-strip outside. I'm not breathing the zip-strip fumes outside with a light breeze. They banned consumer use of zip-strip but I have a small stash. When I'm out of zip-strip I'll pay to have things bead blasted. Again, no more toxic dust for me, esp if it has lead in it.
