  • Touch-Up Paint

    I have a stupid question.

    I'm fixing up some well-used old pipe tools for a friend of mine, and I need a couple cans of Krylon or something in that Ridgid red/orange.

    Unfortunately, everything I've seen at the auto parts store is either red or orange.

    Does Ridge sell that, or is there something else that's a pretty close match?

      Thanks, Dave.

      I checked out the "OSHA Orange" here, but that looks like the new shade.

      The one I want is the classic orange, like this..

      not this..

      or am I looking at the wrong thing?

        Ive heard Engine block orange is a close match.

          I was rummaging around in the garage the other night and found an old can of "hemi orange" engine paint. The cap looked like a good match, but the actual paint was quite a bit lighter.

          Whatever. I already painted the stuff with it. Once it gets a little grime on it, nobody will ever know.

          Thanks, everybody.
