How many of you use these painting rails?
« on: 03/08/24 07:45 UTC »


I have a couple of the 12ā€ models and they are slick. Easy to fill and stable in the oven. Iā€™m loving them.

I made 2 to fit my toaster over. Each are two 1/2ā€ angles sandwiching two pieces of silicone with three bolts holding them together. Just snug the first bolt and start inserting the hooks between the silicone strips and tight the bolts once full. I coated the bare angle metal with high temp paint to minimize rust scale.

I don't use them, but do read comments all the time recommending to use them. Unfortunately, they seem to be used for the wrong reasons.

The comments are for folks having issues with drips, and they're told to use these racks so the drips go down the hook shank.  IMO, it would be better to fix the actual problem, instead of doing something like this and not fixing the cause of the drips, which is usually too much powder or the wrong temps for the powder!

I know some are using them for coating more, faster and that certainly makes sense, but I don't need that much production to use racks. I can coat & cure enough jigs in a day, just painting one at a time & hanging in my oven.
