  • Transfering ATV frames to oven

    I had originally thought of building a "coffen" like oven to do frames. Then I could lower them into it. Now I am thinking of just ordering one from Ted's Fab's. His deluxe base oven. But how will I be able to transfer them from the booth without screwing the powder up? What are the advantages of a vertical oven over one that would lay down?

    My oven is 6'h X 7'd X 4'w It sits right on the concrete with no bottom. I use rolling racks like you see in department stores for the dressing rooms. When I am doing a large heavy part It gets sprayed and rolled into the oven on the same rack. I personally would not go with the horizontal style oven because of the ease of rolling racks into a vertical oven.

      Probably a more even heating of the oven for one. When opening the door to check temps, the parts near the door will lose a lot more heat. I like the vertical oven over horizontal, "I" think it gives you more options on what you hang and how to hang them. I built a rolling rack with an overhead track the same height as the one in my oven. So I can spray, roll it to the oven and just roll it in and out.

              I hang my frame in my oven from the backside(swingarm side is top) I make a handle using the steering stem clamp mount. The bolts should be 8x1.25 and I put a piece of steel plate in them. I use it as a handle that way i can easily transfer it into the oven.
