Why they even make electric ones!(sanders) Takes minutes is all. All the units I build are sandblasted with light type media and are powdercoated for extra durability and looks. We can get impressive one step metalflakes or candy looks from the powder. I was getting two to three years durability on just paint when stored outside and repainting yearly. That was the main reason I switched to powder. Steve.
Sorry if this is a dumb question but when you powder-coat do you just do the outside or do you do the entire drum?
