    The key to successful Cerakote, as with other metal finishing, is to have as perfect as possible degreasing and base metal preparation. The other thing is constant uniform heat. We do an appreciable amount of Cerakote on first time guns, and other parts.
    We made our oven from a larger upright freezer so as to get enough height. Gutted the plastic from the inside and replaced with cut to fit foil backed duct board, sealing with stainless tape. Installed oven burner in the bottom with oven control and a digital thermometer in panel box mounted to the side. Have no pics of the construction as it was done about 8 years ago. Original burner is till going strong.

    I have a repurposed Masterbuilt smoker on the wall of my shop as an oven. It is electric, holds temperature perfectly, has a timer so I don’t need to watch it, and it’s big enough to hold most barreled actions. I got mine for nothing, but even if you bought one new for the job, you could do it for less than $300.

    G'Day Fella's,

    Cerakote is a great product.
    It isn't the best option (I'm not sure what this is?), but considering the ease of application and durability (it will chip off with abuse), it is pretty good.
    I've been applying the 5 day-Air Cure version, to firearms and other items, for some time now.

    FYI, one of my personal rifles.

    Air cure Ckote is a different product than the H-Series. H-cure is a better coating; much harder, and applied correctly is too thin to actually "chip".
