Pet damage

Options
You don’t see this every day. 
Compression tank located under wall corner where previous owner’s dog used to pee.
Gross I know. 
Removing surface rust before painting.
So where can I get B&G compression tank green paint haha?

    There are web sites that will fill a rattle can with whatever color you want.

    I have a customer where a flooring contractor cut the top of the tank with a Sawzall.

    Reminds me of a boiler room renovation I was on. They were going to install a giant boiler feed tank. There was no way to get it in the boiler room, so they were going to cut a hole in the roof and drop it in with a crane. The 480v 3 phase power had been disconnected from the boiler room and they had a temp 480v 3 phase feed run in service entrance cable run on top of the bar joists. When the roofer got on the roof he was using a Sawzall to cut the corrugated roof decking and you guessed it he cut the 480-volt cable.

    It sounded like a bomb went off. Luckily no one was hurt.

    I have that same craftsman stand. Still use it with a mini pipe vise on it.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    @STEVEusaPA - yeah it's a nice workstand! Mine is a B&D Workmate and somehow I ended up with three of them, guess I am the only family member that works on stuff. They're very handy. Only issue is the leg clips seem to break a lot, and the feet fall off. But replacement parts are available.

    My parents had the bench top version of that. It was what i got to use as a vise before I had my own shop and got a real machinist's vise. It is sort of a niche product that shouldn't be your only vise...

    I think it was the heavily marketed xmas gift of around 1980.

    B&G hasn't sold standard, non-ASME tanks like that in decades! Great to see a photo of the old stuff... you can tell because the heads are concave instead of convex.

    Priming and painting it now so it looks decent. 
    It’s quite a solid tank.
