    Power Coating

    Ok a update on powder coating... I purchaced the DIY powder gun from Eastwood...the product is good ..no problems with it....but I have made a discovery....Eastwood has a dual voltage gun also...well I already knew this but didnt want to spend the extra money.. Well here is the difference... The DIY gun outputs 11000 volts The dual gun starts at 15000 switchable to 25000 volts output... So even at low power setting the powder attraction will be greater...so...Eastwood has excellent customer service and will accept my original powder gun as a return and I purchased the dual powder gun ...slight cost difference but I still got it at a sale price not the normal price...

    Mike Starrett.. Thanks for the picture.....it is truly worth a thousand words....so its the "flat" spot just off the trailing edge of the hub....and I guess this reduces lift.

    Hello Tim.. As far as ceramic coating....there is a method called "Hot Flocking"....non conductive surface is pre warmed...then powder coat is applied then re heated to 400° for 20 minutes...this allows the coating to stick to the surface..in theory it should work....it works on glass

    Chris... If your looking to keep that beautiful wood finish....Minwax Polyurethane works great...

    Thanks Brad... So I concluded that 1..I'm no expert And 2. Powder coating need to be in a dedicated area ...Working out of a garage is fine...but it should be a fixed area for proper control and repetable results.

    So although more expensive in the initial cost....its a lot less time....smell...prep.. Plus I wont have to worry about fuel issues with the paint...so now I need to get a spray booth together thats portable...light...and perhaps closeable to put away while not in use....another project....here is the finished motor...ita a k&b 3.5....made into a 3.5 SX ..with a X440/3 prop....all mounted on an Dumas Hotshot Sprint...
