  • painting pins

    Anyone have any luck painting pins? If so, what brand of paint do you use? We have many pins that are taken out of service because they have a big bad black belt burn on them. If we could find a paint that would stay on the pin and not scuff off on the ball, we could still use these pins for awhile. So far the suggestion that I have received is boat paint urathane based. Thanks for reading my post.

    I had preety good luck years ago using Rust-o-leum "Hard Hat" spray paint for colored pins. I see it is still available in many different colors in the Grainger industrial supply catalog.
    Good Luck, Glitch

        Paint all but the neck so the cameras will see the pins.

        Then paint over the pin with clear urethane.

          why dont you just re-coat them? Paint chips and urethane erodes.

            I do what Jerry said for colored pins. I paint them (all but the neck) then give them a good coat of urethane. I do this every two or three years to my colored pins.
            Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!
