Spelling error-should read powder coat.

When we powdercoat, we preheat the oven (and part if it's thick) to 450. Coat the part and put it in the 450 degree oven for 4-5 minutes (until the powder becomes glossy), and then reduce the heat to 400 and let it bake for 20 minutes. We only do small parts, So our oven is just an electric range we found on Craig's List for $50.

Hope this helps...

One of the things that does concern me is like for aluminum rims.I do want the best coating I can get in the longevity and finish,but I do think about distortion baking the part too hot.

The seller emailed me back telling me that oven's heat range is from 250 to 700.

I also do many small parts. Different powders require various heats. Manufacturer of powder usually states desired temp in their tech sheets. Usually 425-250 degrees.

Well I got this email back from the seller:

Gary,

Internal dimensions measure 14"x14"x14".

The manufacturer is Blue M Electric Company.

At first I was going to ask you guys had ever heard of that company.Then I did a search on Ebay and found this:

blue-m oven | eBay

So I think I'll pass on this one.Aside from the things I want it for myself,I was considering taking in side work in my personal shop like the size of wheels on down.What you guys think about that??.

I bought my oven from the local Habitat for Humanities (Re-store). $25.00 and works great. An old sixties built in electric wall oven. i set it on a couple of cement blocks and wired it up to 220 and started coating. Big enuff to do a wheel. But I usually just do trim and valve covers etc.
