A good Rustoleum product is their high heat barbecue paint that you apply with a brush. Stays black too instead of gray. Spray cans are almost always too thin and part of the spray dries while still in the air. Most fine antique restorers don't even own a compressor and use a brush or pad.

Nice job. Just painted my Keystoker 90 with Rutland brand black flat. I used a brush and agree that brushing is typically better than the spray paints. I only use the spray paints for my ash bins if they're on sale.

Nice job on the stove wjamesm! Many folks including myself question the steps and products involved in painting a stove and I have come to the conclusion that a HVLP paint can and a quality solvent based auto engine paint that requires no heat treatment will work fine. That is my plan as soon as I get off my duff and finish my bathroom make over.....which I am doing right now kinda sort of. :lol:

thanks for all the positive comments . i just can't help it when i get something i usually end up tearing it apart to clean it and or paint it . :lol: . i agree on a brush being easier , but what about brush strokes . does anybody have a recommendation for a barometric damper.

The paint has to be laid on evenly and wet enough and often cross brushed to even out. Modern paints are very self leveling. I have seen absolutely perfect jobs on machinery using Rustoleum and brush. Large flat surfaces are the hardest.

Most use the Field RC baro which has a gap around the damper plate. I think the type M is better sealed but more expensive.

I have a type M ... and it's not all it's cracked up to be. Could be due to the fact that my oil boiler's connector pipe moves around, and, the flap gets SLAMMED whenever the burner finally lights off. Long overdue for electrodes and a fuel pump I think ... oh .. and haven't cleaned it or changed the nozzle in 5 years ... but I burn COAL dammit! :lol:

Stovebright can be bought in quarts and they recommend brushing only.

I'd use grain alcohol


Hey FF, I trust you are not going to waste that on a dirty stove. Drink the alcohol and the stove already looks a lot better.
