Utterly brilliant. How do you support the work in there - thread a metal wire or maybe a rod on supports? Any insulation on the outside? A home-made oven for the long stuff makes PC a really compelling option. Although I can imagine the garish nightmares that might result once I had the ability to apply 'chrome', gold, and black metallic sparkle :D

Hey, who doesn't love black metallic sparkle?

I am considering using this when I get to redoing a few guns. I have a friend with a vapor blast set up and compressor to give this s go.

I stopped in to see Joe and his project today. The powder coat looks even better in person and Joe even let me shoot a bit, quite impressive!

Geez Wayne that gun looks a lot bigger in my hands than on the bench. Thanks for a pleasant few hours today and the pic.
