  • NFPA only requires us to spray outside. We should put that in writing.
  • Option 1: Replace oven
    • Tails says: Buying a new oven of same footprint would be approx. $3400 with $1000 donation (so $2400 cost to DMS).
  • Option 2: Repair Oven
  • Option 3: Get rid of all powder coating ovens.

Things we want in a powder coating oven: 1. Retain size
2. Rolling Cart


  • Store rack with compressor and hose reel and cart in oven. With volunteers we could

add a compressed air drop outside in the designated powder coating spot.

  • Can we place the oven where the old machine shop is until laser is moved? That way we

don’t have to put it through the door. Would need to request that to the board.

Malcolm: Motion to procure the 4x4x8 foot powder coating oven with cart, built in elements, and convection from Creative Coating Solutions for not to exceed $5500 pending that the power consumption is under 50A. Second: many
