It evaporates much more slowly, so there's more working time. But I applied it way to thick to try and get coverage in one go. Let it air dry, but it was taking too long, so put it in the oven with the door cracked, set temp at 200 for 20 minutes.Looked good going in. Was dry, with nothing left but powder. So set the timer to 400 for 20 minutes. Don't know if there was residual mineral spirits, or the powder was just way too thick, but it bubbled on me. Rings turned out fine, but everything else looks like crap!So...broke out the powder coat gun from storage. Going to strip all the parts back down. Then make a small rack to hang parts, with a cardboard box for a cabinet. Going to do it all outside, as usual, but too windy today.I'll take pictures of the setup, and the results. Do a proper write up on it elsewhere. Should be of interest to the group, as the setup is economical, much better results than "shake-n-bake", and it can be done in a garage, shed, or even in the yard on a picnic table! Hopefully all of us together can save more of these old, crusty parts, and put them back to work!
