Default Re: DIY powder coat

I would like to do my own powder coating but parts as big as a bike frame need an oven as big as a refrigerator and they cost into the $1000s and my shops too small for one even if I could afford it.
Eastwood makes some excellent products I have one of their metal buffing set ups that works great. Right now I'm looking into an anodizing set up. I would like to anodize some aluminum bike rims and other small parts. You can get into this with out a huge outlay of cash. I've already got a large battery charger and sulfuric acid and distilled water are relatively cheap. I'll have to find a container large enough for the rims that the acid won't eat up or destroy. I understand some plastics will work.
