    Eastwood Co.'s Hot Coat System/updated with link

    Bought one of the Eastwood Co.'s Hot Coat system a couple of years ago. Works great for a homeowner special. I've only got a conventional household baking oven, so I'm limited as to the size of the parts that I can do, but I've done a ton of stuff over the last couple of years and it works great. They have a lot of other cool stuff too. Here is the link:
    http://www.eastwoodco.com/jump.jsp?i...ORY&itemID=458

    First, assemble the parts you want to do, in this case it's my stock handlebar clamps, and get them into the bead blaster box. Parts need to be clean and grease free. The blasting does this and also creates a finish which promotes adhesion.




    When finished, you'll have nice, clean parts free of their original finish.



    Next, we prepare them for the oven in a way that they can be "charged" for the powder. Note the lead wire with the aligator clip and push button to activate when spraying the powder. High temp silicone plugs prevents powder from getting where we don't want it.



    Next is the powder. We spray it on at a very low air pressure, around 5psi while pushing the button to "charge" the parts.





    Then it goes into the oven at 400*F. After about ten minutes, it will flash and turn shiny. After that occurs, it stays in the oven at 400*F for an additional twenty minutes.



    Pull them out and let them cool and your done.





    Go install.



    They make all kinds of fancy, custom colors and clear coats. This is just basic silver with no clear. I'm a big color silver junkie. It could be done better but this was just a little Holiday, day off quickie.

    smw,
    If you do, you won't regret it I promise. They're dirt cheap (relatively speaking) and they're sooooooooooo simple to use. They have a lot of custom colors that look way cool too. They even have colors like "silver vein" which is basically identical to the finish you see on a lot of the Factory Pipe Products exhaust systems. The system I have is close to the cheapest one you can buy and it still works nice.

    Sears now sells an inexpensive power coating system. I don't know if it is comparable.
