question about powder coating.

Ok so as a early birthday present, my mom is going to buy me a powder coating gun, about 2 lbs of 4-5 different colors, and have an electrician install a 220 outlet to connect a stove to in our garage. I picked up a little oven for free off craigslist.
My question is, if I powder coat in my garage is it easy to clean up the off spray. can I just sweep up the powder with a broom that missed the target or will it stick to everything thus needing a dedicated shed to powder coat in.
I plan on powder coating my rims and several other parts on my bike. Forgot to mention my dad is buying me a sand blaster as well for paint stripping.

Re: question about powder coating.

I have no idea about clean up of powder coat. I do know that from what is being spent here on equipment you could of paid someone to powdercoat them for you.

if only that was true.
Full gun and kit from eastwood, is 160$, sand blaster is 65$ and oven free. maybe 50$ for powders.

I called every place within a 125mile radius who does powder coating the cheapest rate I found was, 75$ per rim + 40$ for the little piece the sprocket connects too. thats 190$ right there. Not to mention the little pieces I want changed like levers, the turn dial to tighten/loosen the clutch line, and some other small parts.

Also dont forget I garauntee I can find people locally out of the 40-50 people I know locally with bikes, who will pay to have parts powder coated.

And having my own setup, I can change colors anytime I want. I am buying all white fairing kit, so say I want blue rims...done, say I wana switch it to white with red rims...done...

Re: question about powder coating.

I believe you can just sweep up the powder. The electricity is what makes it stick (barely). Then the heat (oven) is what really makes it bond.

Support your paying vendors for this site like Jamaal or even me who can get rims powdercoated for that cheap price easily.

And what did the electrician's work cost OP? I'm sure you failed to add the cost of the 220 copper line and the installation.I know it's not cheap cause I just had a whole shop re-wired...

Not a dime. My girlfriend's stepdad is an electrician and said he will do all the re-wiring for free.
