Powdercoating at home....

Hey. I bought a powder coating system from harbor freight a while back and I'm going to be using it for some small parts on my harley. I bought one of those small electric toaster ovens for baking the parts. I'm tryin to figure out how to hang the parts to powder coat and then be able to fit it inside the oven without knocking the powder off. Does anyone have any DIY advice for powdercoating ovens or any homemade powder coating stuff at all? Thanks.

Zeek

I welded up a 3/8" rebar frame that i hang the parts on. Then I just transfer the whole thing to the stove after powder is applied. The frame just fits the interior of my stove.

I have been hanging the parts that fit on the rack upside down then hang that to spray the powder. Then I slide the rack into the oven. It has worked so far but I don't put much on it, I don't want them banging togther. The powder is magnatised to the part so it does not fall off easily. Make sure the part is very clean (very clean!) and dry of you will get fish eyes. Also I find that when I turn the oven off and crack the door a little and let the part cool slow the finish looks the best.
