Is powder coqating your ownly sorce of income? What type of powder coating gun did you use? also, what size oven do you have and is it electric or gas?

      Thanks man, appriciate any info you can give.

        I have to agree, we order from Sweden, and its fast delivery, fast orderhandling, great work.

        Only downside is the Swedish customs that tend to find remarks to everything, haha, but we are quite used to that now...

            thanks for the info. I am seriously considering starting something here in the pacific north west. do you think that I could use the hobyiest powder coating guns to coat things. I intend on getting 6 different guns. one for light colors, one for dark, one for clear coatings, one for metalics and a couple spares. Or should I save my money for one of those 3,000 dollar professional guns?

            thanks for any info you can give me.

            thanks, filburn

              To start out out I think you can get by with a hobby gun from caswell. I cant really see a need for so many guns. Just clean the gun completly after each color and you should be good.
              I only have two guns, a hobby gun and a pro gun.
              I have used the hobby gun from caswell to do a lot of parts and I cant complain. Its a pretty decent unit to get started out.

                I am using a gun from one of those Discount Tool Places (HF) and discovered that the Powder makes a big difference. I get a lot better results and lesss headaches when I use Caswell Powders.

                  I have to agree with Johnnie:
                  Caswell provides great service, I am most impress in the speed of delivery. You also have to love the free powder offer! I too have a ton of work coming in the door. Almost too much lately.
                  Hey Johnnie:
                  I see your big oven is electric? How many elements & at what watt each. Also how long does it take to come up to temp?
                  Thanks

                    Bob,
                    im not sure on the element size, I think they are 3500wt(I think) there are a total of four of them. I had the oven wired so I can turn on each burner independly or all at once. The reason was because if I have a small job I can place a temp wall in the oven to make it smaller.
                    From a dead cold it heats to 400 in about 10-14 min's, thats with the temp guage set at 400, if I max it at the stat it goes quicker.

                        Thanks Johnny!
                        I am just about ready to fire up my new (8'wx8'dx8'H) oven. I have it wired with 8 - 3100w elements. Controled by 2 thermostats. I was wondering how long it might take to preheat. I also have it set up so I can turn on & off elements as needed. Although I am going to try to preheat with the kerosene torpedo, once up to temp, turn off the kreosene & switch on the electric. I live in a an area that has one of the highest electical rates in the country.
                        Thanks Again!

                          bob,
                          be sure to let us know how the ove goes on it's first try.
                          Did you buy the oven somewhere or did you make her?
                          She sounds like a real monster at 8x8x8.
