Fantastic, who wouldn't want one of those
That is actually what I do. I wasn't really trying to give instruction, just an overview.If you're just cooking for 10 minutes after the powder flows out, you're undercuring the powder and it won't be as durable as it should be. Get yourself an IR thermometer, and don't start your "time" until the part itself is at cure temp.
lol my wife is pretty cool about this stuff. After I got the gun she said, "just go ahead and cure it out here in the kitchen"I love it to but you never did tell the secret ingredient !!
What the hell did you tell your Mrs happened to her oven, and live. LOL
Charlie, I just mounted one element at the bottom, one at the top and one against the back. For the back one, I just bent it 90 degrees in a vise. I can take pics if you need. As I turned out I get the best performance from the bottom and back ones running; I don't think I'll ever use the top one.What did you have to do to mount heating element for upper oven? If I end up with a convection oven, think the air circulation might cause dust blems in finish during curing?
Huge thanks for your post. Just what I need...and can afford!
Harry, I don't think a fridge would work- they usually have a lot of plastic parts. A lot of guys just make the box from scratch out of metal framing studs and sheet metal. For ideas you might check out the forum at caswell.com; it's a very slow forum but there are some oven build threads.Could you use a really old refrigerator and fit a heating element or would that be more work? Obviously you'd remove all the plumbing and any gases
Without seeing what you have, all I can say is if you have a metal box that can handle heat, it would serve as an oven.Would the really old fridges have plastic parts? Im fairly sure, but not certain that i used to have an old fridge and it was metal lined on the inside and quite large with a solid door
