Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

I am looking for a lead on either a food grade paint or coating for my fruit press.The bottom plate has a light rust on it that I don't think would help the taste of any pressed juice. I have googled it and tried to find something appropriate and have came up with a big 0 so far any help out there?

I would coat it with oil between uses and power wash to remove the oil when I use it.

From a wood-turners perspective:
avoid vegetable and nut oils
these will go rancid after a while. Beside the General Products Salad bowl finish, which is a good choice, light mineral oil will also work, as it does not impart a taste and is not a problem for people with sensitivities to nut oils.

Mineral oil is what I use on wood cutting boards.
2 coats on a new board and a single coat annually.

I worked at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in college and we used mineral oil for everything in our extruding machines.
