I tried to get Myford paint back a while ago. I know what I have ordered is not Myford but Fobco paint for my drill but at the time as I said could not get Myford so came across paragon paint really pleased with it and a good price. Then I needed paint for my newly acquired Fobco bench drill again used paragon paint well pleased with results.

Advantages: Readily available quick delivery and good price, also it is easy to order because they state on their website what the paint is available for.

Disadvantages: None

Excellent service from Paragon, have used them twice now for machinery paints. Paint is good quality, and goes on well with either a brush or (after thinning) spray gun. Colours are very close to website depiction, perhaps a fraction paler. Fast delivery. Only uncertainty is the need for separate thinners for etch timer and topcoat, but minor quibble. Will use again for next machine restoration...

Excellent quality paint, Lots of choice of colours,I would recommend this product for anyone doing rebuilds or repainting any Machinery. I bought this for a Myford Lathe rebuild . Wouldn't use any other product. First time i have used it Bought a second tin, Different Colour for my lathe stand. 500ml tin goes a long way, as it recommends 3 coats give a nice thick coating. Used a quality long Bristle brush to keep brush marks to a minimum , Need not of worried took my time and brush marks were minimal .

Advantages: Hard wearing excellent for heavy duty Machinery, and workshop, Spoiled for choice when it comes to Colour, Easy to apply, well worth the wait between coats for it to dry. Rubbed down between coats to achieve a great finish. . Superb Finish

Disadvantages: Faultless .
