    Need to match Jet blue paint

    I am in the process of buying a white riser block for my blue Jet bandsaw. Does anyone know a brand/color of paint that that matches the Jet blue? I can't seem to find anything on the Jet website. Thanks.

    Check your hobby/craft shop. There doesn't appear to be any color under the sun that Testor's hasn't managed to squeeze into a can.

    Take a smaller part to a good paint store and have them match it for you in an industrial enamel. Sherwin Williams will only do gallons of industrial enamel, but I've read that some other places can do quarts.

    You might try an auto body paint supply shop. They might be able to match the color you need.

    Why? Not to be a SA, but what is the big deal?

    An auto supply store that sells paint can color match it for you. You just need to get something blue down to their store. They will likely sell liters.

    Or Quartz.. whatever that is

    You can even have the auto store put it in an aerosol (rattle) can.
