Powder Coating Calipers, any info?

No one seems to have any real good info on this. I got a quote of 50 to 60 dollars which is very good, but i imagine that doesn't consider prep and sandblasting, but still reasonable. Anyone no anything about it???

Thanks

For 50 - 60 I would expect that sandblasting and other prep is included, at least thats what I would expect from where I would go in my town. Have you tried pricing out any other powder coaters in your area, surely some shop will be willing to beat the others pricing and gain your business...

What color are you planning on going with?

thats a good deal but you could go to harbor freight and buy a powder coating system for about the same price and it comes with some paint and all you will need is a old oven that works and paint them and bake them in it for several hours it works as good and that way you can do several parts instead of a few
