Hardware powdercoating

Sent the dropside latches and hardware for powdercoating. The plastic handles had to go as they were cracked and covering some surface rust (and in any case would have melted in the kiln). Replacement handles were fabricated out of aluminium stock which was then rivetted in place and covered with a black latex dip.

Rebuilt handle after 2 coats of latex dip:

First Step: two of the latches; one with plastic handle removed to expose the rust:

After media blast and powder coating:
The quality of the last paint job is evident in these next two pictures:

New handle hand filed from aluminium stock rivetted in place:
