Default Need an oven

Does anybody have an oven that they don't use for food anymore? I want to bake the paint on my brakes, but I'm not allowed to use the oven at home... I'll supply some beer?

A BBQ would likely be a bad idea since you want a nice constant long-bake vs. a quick hot "searing".. I was wondering about alternates too and thinking that leaving them in a solar oven for a few days might do a half-decent job?

I asked my work if I could use the oven there and the owner said "oh sure, good idea!" but the next day one of the salesmen was using it for heating up some frozen food and I decided against mucking it up.

I am tempted to use my own oven, do the headlights, then the brakes, and then give it a full cleaning.. ?

well don't just toss em on the grill... use a cookie sheet or a pot to disperse the heat. Ovens do tend to give a more uniform heat but i think in a pinch a grill could work.

i've baked my headlights in the oven and nothing bad happened. No stinky messes left over...

i haven't baked any painted parts simply because my oven can't get to a high enough heat. Most high temp paints require 600 degrees F. Mine only goes up to 500 i think. If it is powder coating you're trying to bake, it typically only needs about 400. This is not a good option for brakes though because if you reheat them (ie. hard braking) it can melt off again...

maybe i could use the industrial ovens at school...? Probably not though... I don't think they are being used much this semester...

Yep.. the paint will say "Good to INSANE TEMPS*" and then "*-Depending on temp that is used during setting" or something like that..

Essentially, not baking it will leave the paint pretty vulnerable to heat, the more you bake it (hotter/longer), the better it gets up to a point. On a non-track car you might just get away with no baking, or the solar oven idea (make one for $5!).

More likely to get away with a temporary brick oven and one of those fancy remote oven monitors you can clip on and feed the thing as it needs it?

I have a free working oven on my deck that you can take. Just finished my kitchen and bathroom renos. I'm going to recycle it anyways. You'll have to bring it home and find yourself a 240v connection though.

Someone should fetch it and rent it for like $5 a run to cover the hassles of providing access. Something tells me most people don't have public accessible space near a 240v plug.

So does that mean we can put the oven in your garage?
