Dennis, JPG and Brenda are all talking about the paint I used on my "Greenie" restoration shown in my previous post. Both paints are hammered finish Rustoleum paint. The Verde Green is the closest I have found to the original color in a hammered finish. To get any closer to the original paint it would have to be custom mixed. The silver hammered finish paint is also very close to the original color although for both "Greenies" I have restored the silver was a little yellowed. That could be just from age. The green paints Shopsmith sells, although nice colors, are not very close to the original and are not a hammered finish. When I purchased the Verde Green paint I ordered it from Home Depot since they did not carry it in the store. You may have to search for it. You can check the Rustoleum website to see if they still list it.
After painting the headstock you will have lost the CAUTION label. The picture below makes a sheet of labels when printed on clear matte finish label material in standard 8-1/2" x 11" size. It should fill the whole sheet like any standard printed page. Note there is reference to page 2, 4 and 6 which depends on which manual version goes with your "Greenie". The CAUTION will be found on one of those three pages so use the correct label for your vintage. I originally made this several years ago to replace the CAUTION labels on the "Greenies" and "Goldie" I have restored. It is an extremely close replica of the original label.
Have fun on your project and keep us posted.
