Default My DIY Powder Coating Booth

I was tired of getting powder all over my shop (was just using a plastic sheet) so i decided to build my own filtered powder coating booth. I used 2X3 studs, 4X8 sheets of that composite board stuff with the smooth white finish, caster wheel for the grounded part hanger, box fans, cheap filters, and a Harbor Freight powder gun. If you have any Q's let me know. Enjoy:

Thats exactly the setup i had in mind for me. I dont do the powder anymore but it would be good for paint. Only thing i was going to do diff was a fan or two horizontaly for a down draft. Nice.

The whole thing cost me around $120 not including the powder gun setup, the fans, or the caster wheels underneath (had all that already). I'm sure it could be built cheaper, as mine ended up being almost too large, and I had almost a full sheet of the white stuff left over. The caster wheel I am using as a part hanger was rated at 150lbs, but that is in compression. You can't tell in the picture, but it has 4 deck screws holding it on. I used a longer one for the grounding post. It seems pretty sturdy, I hung a spare frame on it with no issues, and I hung from the bare wooden frame with no issues lol so i think it could hold quite a bit. Could always buy a larger caster wheel and switch to bolts if I want to hang engine blocks or something.

You're going to want to find a new home for all the stuff you put on the lower shelves. It's going to get covered in powder.

Also, avoid buying the HF powder. It's junk.

Otherwise looks good.

So the HF gun is ok but the HF powder should be avoided?

The HF gun works. Eastwoods is a little better because it has a Kv setting for hi and low for multicoats or tight areas.

I've never tried eastwood's powder as everyone told me to avoid when I started. I've tried HF powder and while it works, the quality is lacking. I've had their flat black turn gloss in the oven. The durability isn't the greatest either. The problem is more the inability to know what it's going to do. I've run the same type of parts with the same settings and have had different results.

You are better off starting with good powder from Prismatic or Tiger. Columbiacoatings or powder365 are fine as well. I avoid powderbuythepound. The screwed up 4 out of 5 orders and will only use them if I cannot find the color anywhere else that a customer requests.

I know to avoid HF powder, I only keep it around for stuff I dont care much about. I however have been getting pretty good finishes out of the flat black. Has come out the same color for me every time, but I will agree it isnt very durable. I also get most of my powder from powderbuythepound and tccoatings, and have nothing bad to say about either. PBTP ships to me VERY fast, and they have a good color selection. I do like to try out different suppliers and will probably give those suggestions a whirl, currently trying to find a supplier who's hard container will thread straight to my gun. So far no such luck. I do plan to upgrade to a better gun eventually, but for now this setup works decent for what i do. I also built a good sized oven. I'll post pics of that next.
