Does anyone know where to find instructions on how to build an oven for refinishing projects? Has anyone built one?

Friend used an old toaster oven to do powder coating not too long ago. He later expanded to a pizza oven he scored from a going out of business sale held by a restaurant supplier. Not sure if the average toaster oven would be large enough, or generate enough heat for your needs. You might be able to score an old oven from a remodeling contractor in your area.

Just a few ideas....

I used my oven in the kitchen. My wife was PISSED, but the results were worth it and my kitchen smelled like my garage for a while. I have a plan in my head to use an old water heater with one end cut off and hinged, and parts from a old gas BBQ for the burner. It might work.

I built one from a steel kitchen cabinet that was long enough to fit a barreled action, covered the outside of it with that silver faced duct insulation, and heat it with a single burner hot plate.

Max temp of 325 degrees, fine for most bake on finishes.

Or, go to Norrel's website and shoot them an e-mail, they will send you instructions on building a "homemade" oven also.

i used a toaster oven for doing a few knives, old ragged surefire lights, and few glock slides. When i do my AR, I will need something, though.

BTW the local Domino's would NOT do it. Worried about duracoat on next pie or something
