here is a prime example of why you should always prebaked your parts before powder coating.

these two pictures are taken as I got the part and after about 10 mins at 450 degrees. it seems the seams were hiding old paint and dirt that was bad enough to drip down on both sides. as you can see it actually was all contained under that center part

this would have ruined the coating. I would have to sand off the bad parts and recoat.

not even sand blasting would have gotten this cleaned as it appears that the 007 is built in away that the center piece can hold liquid in between it and the body tubes.

and then here is the gun pulled just after flowout but not cured. this stage is for checking the coverage and metal reaction to the power and allow you to touch up those areas before curing.

as you can see there is some places around the center metal piece that is still seeping after two preheats and alcohol baths. then what looks to be a type of solder holding the body together reacts differently to the powder then the body metal.

so now the plan is to hang this piece upside down to get the pieces that got missed on the first pass and then spray a bit heavy on the seeping areas

frame came out well. still having some issues with the body. the oilly gunk that seeped out prevented the powder from sticking here and the top of the sight post here is being a pain.

have to sand down the white layer a tad around that area to bring it to a slope as you would with repairing paint on a car.

the quality of metal is bad and gasses real bad. this is easily the slowest iv ever had to heat metal to try and prevent gassing pinholes.

got the sight blade sanded and cue tipped some alcohol on the chipped part to see if I can get it to cover.

while it's baking I thought you guys might want to see what I use when the weather is bad.

starting with the ground I use the standard house ground along with an 8ft steel bar 7ft deep outside with 16ft jumper cables to get the best ground possible.

the entire setup is with in a few feet of a wood stove. before spraying I fire it up to heat and dry the air. dry air carrys a charge better then humid air. also humidity of any kind including wet air from a compressor can ruin a coat.

and for that reason I set my compressor next to the stove so it sucks up the dryest air possible along with a bulb type liquid trap inline.

the gun is the standard mid grade that everyone sells. this one is an Eastwood with Chicago front half on it because of replacement parts.

if you noticed the charging rod is in the center of powder outlet. this means that powder can not be sprayed straight. contrary to what people often think... powdercoat isn't aimed. it is dependent on the high electrical charge of the powder trying to get to the closest ground. you form a cloud torwards the item then hope. if it fails you remove the part and air the powder off with the compressor and try again

got that sight blade to coat finally. the marker is done minus a little sanding and finishing touches that will be done tomorrow. I'll get some better pictures then. it's not perfect, the marker doesn't use very high quality metal but I guess that is to be expected. that center piece that the bodies are soldered to is a nightmare with all its oozing of decades old paint.

in the future I would definitely give this thing a soak and very hot water to try and remove that gunk before it melts out and pin holes my powder and/or turns it yellow
