Hey man thanks for getting here so fast. There are bits of info in there that I've been looking everywhere for! Especially the in line filter, I didn't even think of that!

I will be keeping this 6 ft disc after I get done with it do I don't mind putting a little more money into the primer/paint/hardener this job, especially since it should not take much of any listed. I have a big shop with an overhang big enough to park a spray rig and a few tractors under so I think after hearing your advice on the hardener I will do it under the overhang.

Will my wife's porter cable belt sander help me get the sanding done? If so should I just try to find some aluminum oxide belts or is there anything in particular I should look for? Do you have any preferences on prep items such as wax/oil remover?

Again I really appreciate you takin time to help out!

For something like that I'd just go over it with a cupped knotted wire brush to fit your angle grinder. Remove all loose paint and rust. Wipe down and Clean metal with thinner/solvent. For your first paint job just go to your local JD,CIH dealer pick out a color machinery paint and the primer they have to go with it. Then spray on the primer/paint and you're done.

Now for me I wouldn't use the real expensive paint($150gal) on something like that unless proper prep is done as in sandblasted to bare metal.

The last year I've used a cheaper urethane paint with hardner 8:1 from a paint store farm equipment like discs, augers etc. So far it seems pretty good and is supposed to weather well... time will tell.

a disc is gonna be a hard one to clean up.. I tend to not use belt sanders as they are only good for flats, and can take off metal fast.

i do like flap discs, and red and black 3m pads on a angle gringer or drill setup

Have found that a side grinder or even big drill with end brush, twisted, will cut all rust, dirt, and paint pretty quick. my 2c's worth.
