    Re: Pictures of process and equipment

    You guys are gonna laugh at me when you see this oven LOL. It's acctualy an electrical cabinet. (I'm an electrician by trade) It's 3'x4'x16" with 7500W of heat. Now that I have visited this site and seen some of the ovens others are building, I am ashamed of mine LOL I wil eventually be building a 5'x6'x6' I think. Before winter. I only have a 18'x15' shop to work out of and I have a CNC mini MIll in there too. Kinda tight for space. Get's pretty hot in there when curing as well.

      I agree DONT USE PLAYSAND! Ive read alot about silicosis, nasty stuff. To the person in Orlando, FL . Tractor Supply Stores sell glass bead and aluminum oxide. Its not that expensive if your not blasting to waste.
      I do know that you do not want to use glass bead on cast alum. Like intakes for example. The glass beads breakup and get imbedded in the alum and no amount of outgassing wil free them, untill you have powder sprayed on, then they will come up into the powder Ask me how I know lol

          I did an intake that I bead blasted, was full of specs after. I tried twice with glass beads, then I tried silica and it worked fine, no specs in the PC

                  Hi everyone.
                  I'm new to PC but would like to make some custom brackets and what not for my Bike. I also make stands for motorcycles and want to PC them as well. I'm in Canada and order my supplies from Caswell Canada. Shipping is fantastic. I get it within 2 days.

                  Anyways I started out with a small toaster oven and decided to make my own. I had a legal size file cabinet laying around so I used it for the outer shell. The rest I built. The actual baking size is 14-H X 14-W X 16-D.
                  Shelves are fully adjustable and completely removable. Bottom is 1/4" metal for the heavy stuff and the 4 elements are mounted under it with a heat shield at the bottom. I have a 2" vent on top. I have 2" of fire/flame proof insulation between the inner and outer shell.
                  Tried a small piece in it tonight. Works nice.

                            Which process are you referring to? Oven build, Cleaning, Spraying?
                            It kind of hard to run a recorder while your moving around the shop being busy. I like most guys work alone.

                              I have a standard electric oven/range and my set up is in my basement. There is a window in the room with the oven (small brick lined room used to be for storing coal), do I need to vent the oven when I'm cooking the parts or will just opening the window be ok?
