    Just a 40A 220V outlet! Then a used oven. I guess you're never supposed to use it for food ever again. It's toxic. I got my powder coating gun (some powder included) from harbor freight. My outlet is actually 50A rated but the oven only pulls 40A.

    In powdercoating you have to do all of it in the first coat. On the second coat you would discover the powder doesnt stick.

    You're using the force of electrical attraction to stick the powder to the metal. Once the metal is covered, it'll no longer stick.

    You're giving the powder the opposite electrical charge from what the metal is getting, and because opposites attract, thats how it works. Once the powder is cured its insulated the metal.

    Oh! Well, I think it's thin enough in some spots that it would stick. Haha. You can see a little silver in places. I have found that if you can find a bare place to attach the clamp, you can get a little to stick on the second coat. That's what I did on my brake drums. But I had the inside to clamp to. I've never tried a third coat. I'm sure it wouldn't stick by then!

    Also be sure to cover up and wear safety gear. Respirator too! It gave me skin problems that I still have to this day!!!

    I have run into an issue recently, and was curious if anyone else here has had this happen to them. When I am driving normally, the car is fine, but if I try to accelerate hard, usually in 4th gear, the car will shake for just a moment, RPMs go up and acceleration stops, then suddenly it picks back up and is fine again. All of this happens within a second or 2. I have a manual transmission, so my thought is that maybe my clutch is getting worn out, and it may be slipping then grabbing the flywheel again under heavy acceleration. Has anyone else run into this issue before?

    sounds like your clutch is slipping. how many miles are you running at the moment?
