Vintage Sears Meat Grinder: Help Painting Surface


What Paint will adhere to the surface of this vintage meat grinder.
I recently unearth this vintage meat grinder from my parents old house, I wanted to refurbish it and give it a nice coat of red or blue retro shinny paint. How do I prep the surface? What paint to I use? Do I need a paint gun or special equipment?

I wouldn't paint. Just clean. Paint chips could come off and go into the meat.

I'd take it and have it powder coated or replated. Not DIY jobs.

Its retro on its own, why try and change it from its original state. I'd just clean it

It has a tin coating----I agree Polish it paint might not stick----

If you do choose to paint it --Spray cans---a primer designed for galvanized would be the choice--then a couple of coats with a high quality gloss enamel---Expect the oils from the meat to cause paint failure---

That's not stainless steel---it's a base metal with a coating of tin----

With a felt polishing wheel and polishing compound, I bet it would clean up and look great.

Had another thought, would the tin coating be too thin to polish?
