Crammed garage? I know that feeling. What worked for me..... a few trips to the tip (recycling centre) and the scrapyard.

What are you going to build - anything exciting?

I completed building my bench this evening, I can cram that with junk too now!

I am in the process of rebuilding some 1950/60's British steel framed racing (push)bikes, plus I do a bit of amateur gunsmithing, so will be threading barrels and things like that. smiley


Thread: Boxford paint colour - but not blue or green!

Have Trimite not got a sales record of what they supply to Boxford. They may or may not reveal this information though.




Trimite have been very helpful, but didn't offer to check their sales records for a 1991 lathe paint!

Boxford still make the 280 and derivatives, but changed to a two tone blue livery a number of years ago.

Have you tried looking at BS /RAL,colour charts online? Should get you close maybe......



Trimite sent me a BS/RAL high quality colour chart, trouble is there are about 20 whites that are close!

I should add that Trimite will match it if I take a cabinet door off and send it to them, but that is my last resort approach!

Only problem is there is so much kit crammed in my garage, I need to build another garage plus storage shed before I can sort it out and start using it! sad.

Hi all.

I have a newly acquired Boxford 280, in the ivory and yellow livery, as per the first image here:

I'm trying to find out the paint spec/colour so I can do some tidying up of the paintwork.

Boxford can't tell me the paint code, apart from tell me it was a Trimite air drying acrylic.

Trimite can't identify it, nor can Paragon.

Anyone by chance happen to know what BS/RAL or whatever code the paint is?

Hi all

I have a limited background in engineering from many years ago, newly retired I am just setting up a home workshop and so far have a Boxford 280 Long bed lathe, a late Myford Super 7, a Warco WM18 mill, and a Centec 2 horizontal mill.

Looking forward to some tinkering...........
