Everything is back from Powder Coating! We are on the road to final assembly.
Everything was Powder Coated using Tiger Drylac Powder the color is RAL 5005. All of the powder coating was done locally at Dry Heat Powder Coating in Mohave Valley , AZ.
This is the same color used by Precision Plasma so everything matches perfectly. While powder coating the pan, computer cart, and tank cart are definitely not necessary. This is quite a bit of powder which is quite expensive. I could have left is unpainted, or done a simple sprayed on or rolled on paint.
I wanted a great looking system and that is what I got going this route. What you do is dependent on the look you are going for and your budget. Going this route will give me the look and durability that I’m looking for.
The sump tank cart looks great and will last forever. It performs perfectly. I added some door trim edging on the sides to protect the cart and the table when it comes time to move this in and out from under the table.
Here are a couple of before and after shots. That powder coat really makes a difference.
Powder Coating the Pan was a big job it is 105 x 53 and weights about 350 lbs. With the water and corrosion possibility I wanted a nice durable good looking finish for the table. While the years of cutting will take a tole on the pan this coating will keep things looking great. It almost looks to good to cut on.
Here are some pics showing the progress of the pan over the build
Had to throw a picture
Of my shop helper. “Trixie” has been a big help during this build. I do need to get a welding helmet for her. Maybe my friends over at baker gas can hook me up with one her size.
