Powermatic Restoration: Soliciting Palette Opinions

Did a test re-assembly last night and I’m not sold on the color scheme so I need some advice. I like the blue, but I think the “antique white” contrasts too starkly. The trunnion assembly is not going to change, but I might repaint some of the smaller parts. I was thinking dark gray? The cabinet is still going to get the horizontal “Powermatic stripe”. If I paint the adjustment wheels dark gray, the stripe will get the same treatment, so the rest of the internals will mostly be hidden. Ok, who’s got an opinion:


Silver/Dark Grey would be nice on the external parts.


ooh, good point. after I scrape the rust off the top, it’ll be gray too. That saw looks real good.
