  • PC Gun

    Im wondering what guns you guys use. Right now we use the chicago gun and it works fine, just a few problems with it. But we are thinking of getting a new gun, either the eastwod powdercoating gun or going with the chicago gun again. Anyone know of a better gun for kinda cheap? Or any pros/cons of esatwood and chicago gun?

      Re: PC Gun

      Why are our powder guns better than our competitors?
      • Our powders cups are tapered to provide smoother flow, and they are gravity fed, rather than siphoned.
      • The charge switch is controlled by a foot pedal, leaving your hands free - competitor's are hand controlled.
      • The power pack is more compact and lighter.
      • Sturdier construction - less powder leaks

        I would go with a Caswell gun. I just got mine, it's a great unit. Plus Caswell's tech support is second to none.

          I had an E.W. gun and it worked great for a few months. Then it started leaking, not charging the powder and not grounding the parts. My friend has a caswell gun that he uses in his business (daily powdercoating) His works great still... I was leary of the design at first but I have used it and absolutely love it. Plus for the price you surely cant beat it.

            The Caswell gun looks almost exactly the same as the chicago electric gun. Is it?

              I have the caswell gun, works great. I haven't tried any others, but if it ain't broke don't fix it I always say. Never had a problem with customer service either.

                No - we've had the manufacturer make some adjustments to it to improve reliability.

                    Improvements to the circuitry to make it more reliable. But don't listen to me, listen to the other folks who've posted here that don't have any financial stake in selling you something.

                    I'm so confident in this unit that today I talked someone out of spending $1500 on our pro-unit to spend $95 on this one. It's a great system, and we will stand behind it 100%.

                      If there is a chance that you might go with the Chicago gun again, definitely get the Caswell gun instead.

                      Buying the Caswell gun is like buying from your friendly local family-run store down the street. It's worth a lot to have people to call for help. I've had to deal with them a few times and I always feel good after getting off the phone with them.

                        I have seen the Chigago gun at a Harbor Freight store, it's not the same as the Caswell gun. Plus, at Harbor Freight it was $100, the Caswell gun is $95 and better quality. If the Caswell gun has a problem, Caswell will resolve the problem. Harbor Freight would be a huge hassle.

                          I bought a CE gun when I first started, and it was ok...or at least I thought it was, but it wasn't long before I found out it wasn't as reliable as I hoped it would be. I know someone who is on his third EW gun in five years...enuff said there. I only wish Caswell was about six months quicker with their pro gun. If I were in your shoes I would be taking a much closer look at the $95 Caswell gun. JMHO. You get what you pay for. Service is king.
