    Default How much smoke, baking paint in?

    How much smoke is thrown off when baking in for an hour at 400 degrees the paint on an AK? Should this only be done outside? What type of ovens or heaters have you guys used to accomplish this?

    Thanks for your response on the smoke issue. After spray painting how long do you let it dry before putting in the oven? Does the old paint need to be roughed up first or do you just paint over a clean surface? Rustoleum, oven black, enamel is that what people are using? is it suspended by wires in the oven?

    I would suspend it. I used BBQ paint from HD and baked it at 300 for 3 hours. No smoke and little odor. My wife wasnt mad at all! I would let dry for a day before using oven to bake it.

    I used Duplicolor High Heat 1200 Degree Semi Gloss. Mbad has seen the finish it leaves. Be sure to bake it good. This Paint dries pretty quick so you could back it with in a half hr of painting.

    Yea man, turned out nice. Just make sure you suspend it from the oven. I didnt with my underfolder and it left a grill mark on the bottom of the trigger guard. It doesnt bother me though.

    Thanks for great advice. Why not shorten your learning curve by asking others, instead of trial and error making the same mistakes others have already figured out how to solve.

    I used Rustoleum Textured and let it dry overnite and used the kitchen oven at 275 degrees. Did two coats and baked the first time for 45 min and the second time for 1 1/2 hour. Little smell but no smoke. Had the exhaust fan on full blast and that helps to keep the smell down and not spread thru the whole house.

    I think the key word here is "bake"! I've had many friends, that don't do a lot of cooking, and turn on the oven to bake something and use "broil". I'm sure this would smoke up the house.
