    It never had wheels on it for thirty years, but it needed to be repainted, and getting it out to the shop was a huge job without wheels. I need a new rug and i don't wish to go through the same problems moving it again. It's very heavy, I would guesstimate over 200lbs, and someone is always home. It's fire proof, I just keep important papers in it.

    Aeronca, the paint is Rustoleum's Verde Green Hammer paint. MFG # (for a six can case,7219830.) The part number number might work for a single can too, but I like the color so I buy it by the six can case. It matches my Ellis saw and Belt grinder's color and texture perfectly.

    The cheapest place to buy it is at Home Depot, but they are out of it too, and give no time table when they are expecting their order to come in. Zoro said they expect to get their order on the 16th of August, so I placed an order with them. I checked every on line national home center and none of them have it. It could be a hardware store has it on the shelves somewhere in the country..

    safe mod

    The 30 year of safe and shop built base got a new paint job, and the stand's legs got new 1/2" leg caps welded on for four new 1/2" stem 4" casters. There is a expanded metal shelf that fits in the angle irons under the safe which is waiting for more paint, as is the top of the safe.
