Eastwood Co’s running a sale on their original Hotcoat powdercoating gut, knocking $25 of its standard $99 price to bring it down to $74.99. If you’ve been considering jumping in and trying your hand at powdercoating, this might be a good way to give it a go.
There are a ton of inexpensive powdercoating guns on the market, but we’ve always thought Eastwood’s was one of the best — mainly because Eastwood has been selling products like these for years and we suspect they can handle the required customer support. Of course, we’ve also always suspected that the gun isn’t the difficult part in getting started powdercoating; Don’t forget that you’re going to need an oven or heat light setup, which can make the price of the powdercoating gun seem small.
We’ve heard of people installing old household ovens as an inexpensive alternative to professional rigs, and we do know that Harbor Freight sells a small oven specifically for powdercoating.
If you have experience with this particular product — or any of the many, many knockoffs, drop us a line and let us know.
