My first Powdercoating experience

I decided to buy a small powdercoating set up so I can do small projects for myself and others. Anyways, I dont have an oven set-up yet, I am picking it up on Tuesday and then its really "awwwwwwwwwwn"
The work I did today was to powdercaot the slide and barrel on my .40 Kel-Tec pistol. I have "melted the slide" which means to sand off all the sharp edges and basically smooth the whole slide and then I sand blasted the slide and barrel with 0000 fine blasting sand and then I prepped with xylene and sprayed the powdercoat. for the baking, I used a 100 watt bulb.
check this out:

makeshift oven and thermometer
MVC 080S

sneak peak inside oven at slide cooking
MVC 083S

makeshift bulb oven cooking along at a happy 250 + degrees
MVC 084S

peeking inside at the barrel smoking and cooking
MVC 081S

finished product, hard durable coating that won't rust and looks dizzamn good, the pictures really dont do it justice.


MVC 086S

MVC 087S

MVC 088S

Make sure that you fire a few boxes to check for function. Why powdercoat vs a firearms specific finish?

I thought powdercoat was too thick for the tolerances in some firearms.

I didnt powdercoat the slide rails due to the thickness of the hardened coating. The reason it had to be redone is because I totally redid the shape of the slide (melted slide work), then sandblasted the rest of the bluing off. When my attempts at re-blueing sucked, I decided to buy a powdercoat rig and do it the right way.

I've been having the same idea. My buddy used to powder coat and I need some parts for my bike coated but the people in town want ridiculous amounts of cash to do it. I thought of getting my own stuff and do it myself....Guess i'll be bugging you.....

When are you officially "open"?
