Re: Outdoor Blast cabinet?

Great stuff. I love looking at home builds and reading how they are done. (I think that makes me a nerd :D ) I am currently thinking through building a second cabinet but I will try to use two long brushes (like the ones used in a pass thru cabinet) for the arm holes. I don't use the grit release ho...

Re: Harbor Freight Pot Blaster Tips and Tricks

I bought a second compressor. Combined I get about 15 cfm. Depending on how much money I have left after building my spray booth, Im either going to build a franzinator hooked up to a bunch of copper piping or buy a refrigerated dryer from HF. How have you rigged them up please, do you use a switch...

Re: Outdoor Blast cabinet?

I have a roof on mine and it is in a good place so wind does not hit me or rain. I can set a fan behind me in the summer and one of two heaters in the winter.

Re: powdercoating beginer

Buying from P365 would be the way to go !!! IMHO +1 Better powder at a better price in my opinion. I wish I had a dollar for everytime this was said, but get yourself a good LED light, and use it while applying the powder. Forgive my stupidness here Larry, but why an LED and what sort please?

This is Penny Vein with Glass clear. The botton was shot hot - too hot. The problem is getting the right cov...

Re: Custom blast cabinet.

Excellent! Sorry didnt see your last ?. I framed the floor with 2x4s & laid down expanded metal: http://184.72.239.143/mu/ae75eb1f-1968-25a1.jpg Works good, but I have to cover the 2x4s with metal flashing because the media slowly eats away at it.. Try lining the whole inside with cheap rubber car ...
