Powder Coating and toaster oven

I was at a yard sale the other day and I saw a nice size toaster oven that seemed to be big enough to use for baking small powder coated parts. It's temp control would go to 400, anyone tried using one for this purpose?

Regards
Mark

Yes, mine works well...lessons learned.
use only OUTSIDE---- kinda obvious,but the laundry room still smells funny.
Do Not PREHEAT THE OVEN,load the parts, then turn it on. I scrounged an industrial timer, so I don't have to babysit parts ,
Don't trust the numbers on the dial,spend the $3 on a good oven thermometer,use it to recalibrate the dial.
Don't open the door to admire the work. Can cause cloudy spots.
Paper/cardboard burns at 451 DEG. but it smokes a lot sooner than that... use sheet metal to hold small parts.
Don't EVER use that oven to heat food/coffee etc.again EVER !
when you burn out the element(and you will, I'm on my third oven) trash the oven with a hammer so It can't be fixed at the goodwill or by some yard sale buyer, the residue that builds up on the heating elements is TOXIC..............
