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?

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---

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?
