  • A little break from Q&A

    Ok who has weird projects going? We have seen frames, valve covers, a cart, wheels, etc... Who has something out of the ordinary? I would like to see it, however simple it might be. Waynes silverware seems to fall in to this category . So step up coaters and show us the practice widgets or neighbors lawn ornaments.

    Also if Caswell will say OK I'd like to have another contest, I'll even supply the prize.

          Did he mean "lawn CART", perhaps? And I don't know if it counts as a "weird project" or not, but what do you think of the nichrome wire heat lamp idea I suggested a couple of posts down? Would it be (or could it be made) effective for heating parts enough to cure?

                    That is exactly what I wanted. I little out of the ordinary and a fun project.Thank you for the photo and explanation. So who else has something? At almost 100 veiws you think that there would be others that aren't just doing car and bike/atv parts. Also people interested in another contest please chime in. I'm thinking maybe some powder as the prize(any suggestions?)

                        I sit corrected; a lawn CAR it most certainly is! Neat old beastie. Learn something new every day around here.

                          I just powder coated a traddle sewing machine frame that my
                          customer is going to make into a coffee table. I posted a pic
                          of one of the end panel's and will post the finished product when
                          he's done.

                            I just noticed that without even realizing it I coated something odd. The light bulbs in my booth . I removed the covers today to clean them and noticed the bulbs now have every color I have sprayed. They look nasty- Anyone else ever look at their lights after coating? Seems simple enough but easy to overlook.
