Re: Powder Coating - A Home How to

Thanks. let me throw 1 more at ya that I done last week with some detail work. This is a very time consuming process when Its all done with powdercoat but the end results are very gratifying. This is black mini texture with the lettering done in dazzling pewter.

Re: Powder Coating - A Home How to

How do you do the multi-color? Spray 1, wipe off areas you want the 2nd color, spray color 2, then bake? Or do you bake between colors?

You guys do some beautiful work. Finally got to try my setup from Eastwood, despite having it for a few months now. I coated a goalie mask cage orange-yellow. The result was OK but not perfect. A bit patchy in some spots. Any idea why? I also tried doing a second coat and found that it was not really attracting any more powder.

Also, can one powder coat over chrome? Some of the cages I have are chrome plated and I'd imagine fully stripping the chrome would take forever.

One thing to keep in mind when ordering powder is to make sure they are selling you virgin powder, some companies will offer used powder that has been reclaimed and if your not careful it will have impurities that will show up in your powder. Columbia coatings has a gun that has a patent pending nozzle that will charge the powder without charging the part that will virtually eliminate faraday caging and if your piece can handle the temperature it can be powder coated. Ive personally powder coated wood and glass. here is a few items that ive coated in the last few weeks.

looks really good! is that intake manifold done with silver vein?

Re: Powder Coating - A Home How to

I have the same set up but have yet to powder coat anything since creating it. I have done some smaller items in a toaster oven in the past. Here is a link to another person doning powder coating in his garage that has alot of useful tips as well.

Re: Powder Coating - A Home How to

I just got one of these setups about 6 weeks ago yes its messy but so rewarding! I have been doing a ton of yeti cups ( stainless tumblers)

I an having really good luck but does anyone have a good basic way to mask things off so you could two tone? I bought some of the high temp tape but kinda worried it will leave goo behind. Any tips?

Cant wait to do some stuff when the 72 gets tore down gotta pick a unique color

And I am using a toaster oven I bought the biggest one walmart had but I am on the lookout for a used electric oven for sure. Then I am pretty sure I could do wheels

I love the Yeti cups. They are freaking awesome! I give them away as gifts all the time. I do have one concern, though. Does the high heat harm them? I know they say not to freeze or wash them in the dishwasher. If it doesn't, I may have to give it a whirl.

As far as the tape, I have used it before and didn't have any issue with the adhesive. It's made for that as long as you get the right stuff. It's not cheep, though. You can also use a small amount of tape and tin foil to mask the rest of it.

Re: Powder Coating - A Home How to

So far so good no complaints. My wife wanted a Tiffany blue one and the prices for people that were doing them was crazy almost $100. So I spent like $400 buying crap to do my own. I have since got Rtic brand cups for $20 each I even did some stainless champagne flutes

Re: Powder Coating - A Home How to

You must get ALL of the grease out of the parts. If you don't, it will run out and into the powder. We all know what that turns into. You can simply paint them, but, as with everything. The more time you spend, the better it will turn out to be.
