  • Eastwood customers.

    Looking for your opinions about Eastwood products. I get 10% off a first time order and I'm looking at starting powder coating on my own. They seem to have a good forum that I havent register with and I'll trust your opinions more.

    I'm looking at buying a powder coat gun kit, some powders, an abrasive blaster, and perhaps their rust encapsulate system.

    Thanks!

    Good luck with your venture.....we've got a guy locally that does powder coating.
    Finish is so-so.

      I bought that fender lip roller from them, it was one of their black Friday specials, I had no problems and the shipping was fast......

        Let me clarify, I am not starting a buisness. I've done it twice using a friends equipment and I bought a 20 full sized oven off Craigslist the other day.

          How does the rust encapsulate compare to something like rustoleum?

              Good thread James, I too am curious about Eastwood Products. Anyone have any input on their plasma/ tig combo? Their prices seem fair and quality above Harbor Freight.

                I'm not sure, I was hoping for something on par of por15.

                  I've used some of thier products over the years. seem about average. I was not impressed with the trunk spatter paint. coverage was poor. seemed thin. and it required a specific clear coat after application, and it has not proved durable. The encapsulator is kinda so-so. I used it about 7 yrs ago on some panels and they were rusted badly enough that i had to replace them this past winter when i did all the rust repair. I did re-use the product to coat most of my newly welded panels, but this time i also coated them with copious amounts of paint. and more paint. ask me in 10 yrs how it worked for me.

                    We tried their header coating last year......results were not what we anticipated.
                    They refunded money.
                    I usually place couple orders a year....like their specialty coatings.

                      we have a full size oven that we bought cheap for this same purpose... brackets fit, but wheels dont. a sbc intake BARELY fit. try some random things to see what fits before you spend a ton o cash....

                      no experience with eastwood stuff, though

                        Was it the one that makes it look like a bare manifold? Or a high temp powder coat ?

                            It was this product

                            http://www.eastwood.com/tlc-colorgar...olish-4oz.html

                            The finish was more like a primer grey.......nothing shining at all.
                            Some of the reviews had same results as we did.

                              I've bought some of their stuff over the years and they seem fine. Customer service has been good. I have their 175 map MIG welder and I like it. Lots of poop for the price.
