New Oven Build

Post by TXTig » Thu Mar 11, 2021 9:37 pm

Finished up my new oven build. Recently started powdercoating metal art that I make as an alternative to paint. I started using an old oven which was OK for smaller pieces but after customers saw powder vs. paint they all wanted powder and oven size was limiting. Considered buying a ready-built oven but due to tight finances I opted to build one instead. I started out using big box (lowes) steel studs and the frame just seemed too weak and I wanted something to last. I used 14 gauge c purlin and 14 gage receiver channel for the frame, 20 gauge sheet for the walls and 16 gauge sheet for the floor. Installed a Dayton high temp blower in the ceiling and blow the warm air through a duct near the bottom. Elements are 4 - 2500W units that heat the inside up to 400 deg in about 15 minutes. High temperature 12 ga wire from all the element boxes to the main junction box. I bought the Auber control kit rather than go on an electrical scavenger hunt. I’ve got a YouTube video of the process in the works but haven’t edited the raw footage yet.
