Default Powder coating with the house oven?

I live in a rental so it's not really "my" oven, but would you dry parts that you powder coated in the house oven that you still use to cook food occasionally?

not at the same time...


also what are some inexpensive power coat guns that can get the job done?

Get a cheap, used oven on Craigslist and use it for your projects. Electric is better than gas because it heats more evenly, and you won't have to run a gas line to your garage/basement.

For small parts, find the biggest toaster oven you can, but you have to watch the temp. Some powders require some pretty high heat to flow out.

You can always find a garage sale oven or check out a used appliance store. If there is a space in the electrical panel for an extra 220v breaker, that's a big plus. The oven should really be outside when you are baking the parts.

Harbor Freight has a cheap kit that works but I would recommend the Eastwood hotcoat Kit. Eastwood has a wide variety of colors including chrome and candies and metallics.

I got mine from an appliance store. It was a trade-in or haul-away, or something like that. Got it for free.

That stuff isn't really really toxic, but its toxic enough that the house oven is a bad idea.
I used to powder stuff in the garage. Had an oven that was 7'x4'x3'. I got tired of making a powdery mess in the garage and it took up too much of my leisure time.

I have about 3 or 4 powder coating places around town. Haven't looked into it much but I would assume even after I bought all this stuff it would be cost affective to do it myself...at least for the stuff that'll fit in the oven.

I just took the body off the frame of my 69 this weekend and am realizing while i have it off and will be blasting most of the metal parts if it's worth to keep what i've been doing(spray cans.) or invest in a powder coating gun and get it done right....

I don't see a problem then. Do it right before you move.

here's an easy question that'll most likely decide the fate of this situation.

Do all electric ovens use 220v? I can't see a way to use an oven in the garage or basement if it needs more than 120.

I certainly wouldn't do it. Good idea to just buy a used stove and set it in the garage.

And you wonder why some landlords can be so picky.
