Someone recently asked about my powder coating setup. Really nothing fancy. Eastwood entry level gun and power supply and regulated dry air and our old Jenn-air range. :thumbsup:

Dale is designing a new addition to his house right now.

Keep your eyes on the news from Puerto Rico in case Wendy gets wind of this latest potential scheme for bigger and better powder coating capabilities.

More power...arggh, arggh, arggh.........


Sorry Frank! That is one sweet setup....

If you have ever been around when it's being "cured" in the oven, then you will want to make sure the little lady is not at home because of the smell. Either that or set up a work-shed way down at the other end of the garden like the set-up I saw down in Virginia where a TR owner does powder coating.

Don: that's why the fan's there. Seriously, I have the material safety data sheets (MSDS) for most of the powders I buy. The toxicity is very low - but I agree it stinks. The fan really helps.

"cant ya just use yer toaster oven.....lol"

Yes you can! I bought a cheap toast oven and have done many small parts in it outside. No smell and great results for parts that can be layed down while baking. https://www.flickr.com/photos/13206219@N07/1871348162/in/set-72157602927282958/

Yes, you can, if you want a divorce.

I suggest getting your own, unless you like waiting for her toasted English Muffins to get done first.

Thanks Frank
It will take time to finish the TR as I'm slowly aquiring all the missing parts. My B/E wil be done first.
