This inexpensive powder coat oven from Harbor Freight might be a good alternative to that “recovered” oven you’ve been thinking about installing in the shop. Why? It runs on 110V so you don’t have to drop 220V, it’s a lot more compact, and you need a range top in the garage like you need an extra hole in your head.
It’s temperature adjustable to 480 degrees F, and it draws about 15A peak, which means it’ll easily run off a “freezer plug.” The inside is an 18″ cube, so this would work great for small items (like valve covers), and this would be a great match for Craftsman’s (or Eastwood’s) gun-based powdercoating systems.
Best of all: it’s on sale for $350 — down from the $399 you’ll see on the website — in the most recent HF sale flyer. The deal’s good through June 25th.
