I purchased a very cheap Coffee hand grinder. Someone had previously painted the wooden housing with a blue spray paint, and some of the paint got onto the iron grinding mechanism inside. I can unscrew the grinder from the box, and would like to know how I would get this off of the iron?
You can burn it off as well....WD 40 may leave a residue and effect the taste of the coffee if you intend to grind with it.If the part is removable, and is all irom you can burn off the paint. I would reccommend MEK and steel wool as well. MEK ( or Methyl Ethyl Ketone) is an agressive solvent available at hardware and paint stores. It leaves a slight residue but breaks up most paints well. Use a rough steel wool grade like single zero grade.

Was the unit purchased new or used? The price of a new is about $125-170. This unit is for homeowner occasional use, not for large jobs.Was the unit working on the previous use? If so were the cleaning instructions followed and not shortcut. If paint is failed to be totally removed on cleanup it will dry inside unit.There are very few replacement parts for this unit. If the unit is not working take wrench and try to remove prime/spray valve. You will have to remove knob to access this part.
Most airless spray guns spit a bit when you pull or release the trigger because the paint between the spray tip and the paint valve is under pressure but not enough to atomise the paint. If you increase the pressure you may reduce the spit to a point when you don't notice it. A blocked filter could slow the paint getting through to the tip cause lower pressure.
Paint it with white enamel. Enamel Paint finishes in high gloss if you want that sort of finish. Always paint in a dust free invironment with plenty of ventiallation.

You should first put a layer of primer using wood primerfrom a spray can. This will prevent thepaint from being absorbed into the wood. After 24 hours, you should use acrylic black (or whichever color youwant) paint in a spray can. The reason Irecommend spray paint is because it's easy and gives you tan even, blemish freecolor. Wait 24 hours (so that bubbleswon't form) and do another layer. If itdoesn't look thick enough to you, wait another 24 hours and do a final layer. There is no need for a clear finish.
It should be easily move.I don't know how its stuck. BUT a Good advice.If you in future disassemble the grinder.Then,make sure you either count the screw rotation of unscrewing or just put paint mark on screw where it was previous fixed. Once you open grinder its very hard to put it back to work grinder like before. Thanks Please rate my work
