Latest Ideas

Hi,

Ordered a system a while ago, spoke to Phillipa? Very helpful and I’m very, very pleased with the setup!

What used to take me 30 mins with an Eastwood setup, now takes me 5 mins at the most. I still can’t believe how easy and consistant this system is, highly recommended!!

 I thought you might like some images of what I have achieved with the setup – I fabricate stop motion animation armatures for studios all over the world, and as you could imagine, they consist of very intricate and small parts. Hopefully, the images are testament to the quality of your system.

 Anyway, thanks again for your help and I’ll be ordering a bunch of powders soon but have a couple of questions so will call before hand if that’s ok.

 All the best

 Julian

Here are the parts that I done today. Despite the new oven failing and the hurricane winds I still managed to get the results I did. I firstly cleaned the brake levers with a degreaser then popped them into my new ultrasonic bath for five minutes.
I then heated them in the oven for five minutes then hung them on the wires.
I set the gun up to your instructions and started with the chrome. It took straight away then I baked it for ten minutes, and the result was very good for the first time.
I used the red candy for the top coat and I am really pleased so thank you.
Please take a look and tell me what you think.

Regards
Russell

After purchasing my kit from you at the kit car show on Monday at the end of the day, I went out and bought a halogen cooker. I got it from tj hughes for £24... Bargain.
I have to say I am immensely impressed with how easy the kit is to use and how awesome this 22year old bit of rusty metal off my track car turned out!
Thank you guys!
If the offer stands for a free bag, I'd love to try the high chrome!

I'm not someone who would normally go to the trouble of writing and thanking a company for supplying me with goods or services, but on this rare occasion, I had to write and say big thanks, for everything.

For years I have seen you at shows, must have driven you mad with all my questions, then finally I got one of your Easy Coat DIY powder coating systems. It’s so easy, I wished I bought one years ago!

My reason for holding back for all the years, was quite simply because I couldn't believe it was that simple. I have had a go at many things, including spray painting in the past (without great success), things that look easy when done by a professional, but not so easy for most “DIYers”.  Your powder coating system, really is easy, I took it out of the box and started powder coating. First time was a great result (not perfect) and with a few goes I was achieving results that I was satisfied with, and I'm am extremely fussy! I am now very popular with my friends (and their friends), some have actually offered me money to do work for them, that’s how good the results are.

The oven

The baking/curing was another concern and was a contributing factor as to why I didn’t get a kit sooner.  I have enclosed some images of my early makeshift oven, it works really well, but does restrict the size of the item I’m powder coating.  It’s a galvanised dustbin, sourced from Wickes, with a hole cut either side to allow for a bar to pass through and hang the items from. A local metal workshop, cut  the round support and the heat source was ‘liberated’ from a friends’  parents, but can be bought fromhttp://www.coopersofstortford.co.uk/coopers-of-stortford-halogen-oven-+-lid-stand-+-accessory-pack-multibuy-saving-prodst08670i/. It  gets up to temperature very quickly and retains it, although it might look a bit “Heath Robinson”, it works well. My new found popularity and desire to powder coat everything in sight has encouraged me to take the next step and build my own oven.  This link might interest you and your customers http://www.powdercoatoven.4t.com/

 

Thank you once again, for your patience prior to buying the kit and ongoing support and advice, it’s a great kit and I would recommend it to anyone. In my opinion, you need very little skill to achieve excellent results, the kit will pay for itself on the first few jobs, plus you have the convenience and satisfaction of doing it yourself. Ten out of ten.

Hi There, 

I recently purchased one of you powder coating systems, and I have to say I was pretty amazed at the results I got from it.

After a ton of stress with a local powder coater getting the colour match all wrong on the two most important pieces and then after being asked to strip and re-coat it when I got it back it was worse than ever, it turns out they didn’t bother to strip it they just tried to re-coat over the top so I took it away not too happy and had it chemically stripped and took it back for them to just put the silver base coat on.

That’s when I decided to buy one of your DIY home kits, and as you can see the results are amazing, I have only done the two rear sections as these were the only ones in need of work. But I have some plans now for a ton of other parts on the quad, which is why if the offer of free powder is still available I would like some chrome silver please.

I used a couple of infra-red heaters that we have in work and I had to move it up as it cured, as you can see they were a bit too long to get in one hit, but they worked a treat.

For anyone that’s interested I am building an R1 powered Yamaha Raptor 700. 

I am sending some pics right now via the bigfiles thing

Kind regards 

Berkeley
