    iron_boy,

    People have used those "smoker" grills that you can buy at any K-mart and Meijer type store.
    It's innocent until proven guilty no matter how much you hate the present or future defendant.

    Gun coat ovenposted pix for the terra cota oven on the gun coat oven thread . The thing works great for everything,a whole ak is hard to load if the paint is still wet but it can be done. It is a hell of a lot easier than a divorce which is what I was going to get if I put one more gun part in my wifes' oven. I am currently looking for some old terra cota sewer line in 10 inches. It used to be used in all sewer drain systems but has been replaced by something else now. If comes in 4 foot sections and should be a lot easier to load a whole rifle in. Just put the hotplate in the bottom and a terra cota drain plate on the top.

    I have on my latest build. The Duracoat I have doesnt need to be baked, however waiting three to four weeks before it cures sucks. After applying the finish, I waited for a couple hours before I put them on the grill. On the grill I covered the cooking area with aluminum foil and sat the parts on it. I also used a oven thermometer so I could watch the temperature. I let the parts bake for roughly an hour between 200 and 225. I then turned off the grill and let the parts cool slowly in place before removing them. The finish came out hardened where I could assemble the parts without scratching it. So far I am pleased with the results.

    Dito. DuraCoat needs no baking. It needs patience. And, from experience? Baking is worthless. Spray, then wait 1 week before touching it. It's value is primarily for items that can not be baked... otherwise? Use GunKoat.

    the cheapest and best finish for your $$$ is to get some duplicolor 1200 ceramic and bake it for 2-3 hours at 350 in your oven hanging from a rack..

    Does that stand up to solvents well?
