    I just bought an older steel sander. It is a 1.5 yd or 2 yard sander. It runs and everything but it has some rust and needs to be painted. Can you guys give me some advice on how to prepare the sander for paint, what type of paint to use, and any other maintenence I should do on it before winter?

    The best thing to do is to have it sandblasted. If you cant do that, you would have to grind off most of the rust and use a rust inhibitor paint on it. I beleive rustoleum makes one. An etching primer like vera prime (SP?) is good to use for a primer. They use this in an automotive application. Then you could use regular plow paint to finish.

    I wonder how a rhino coat would work??
