Thought I would share some more of my experiences in powder coating. I have been scouring the house and shop for anything metal not too heavily bolted down and powder coating it. This time I grabbed a Penn Model 111 2/0 senator that was lying around that had some severe corrosion on the chrome parts. The 111 is a classic reel for west coast USA salmon trolling.
The plan was to experiment with a fancier multi-coat, muti-color scheme of Lollypop red over light chrome. This is a more difficult paint scheme as the translucent red will show defects more readily.
I made it at Techshop: http://www.techshshop.ws
Step 1: Prep
Step 2. Outgas bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. May not have been necessary. I assumed that some corrosion-x or other oils meant to minimize the chrome damage may have leached into the brass. After parts cooled, I washed with simple green and air blasted dry.
