Not that I do a lot of fabrication, but I didn’t even consider powder coating for a project, naively thinking that it wasn’t possible without a semi-pro shop. Thanks to John Saunders’ video, I know now what my next
toy tool purchase is going to be.
John was selling machined aluminum camera mounts and wanted a nicer finish. He wasn’t running large enough batches to anodize, but wanted the flexibility to change colors. When he got fed up with smelly spray paint that chipped, he went looking for other solutions. He found the Craftsman Powder Coat gun and a $25 toaster oven does the trick, and doesn’t even require an air compressor.
