I know your vote will depend on the cost, assume for the sake of the poll the cost will be in your desired price range.

At this stage it is only a idea (one that is in serious consideration) because of start cost involved and the xfactor of how much demand there might be.

If you have any comments please write them below. Tell me if you think it's a good idea or if I'm a complete idiot. How much you would pay for the service. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.

My intentions would be to offer my own powdercoated enclosure as well as offer the etching service alone.

Pedals, amps, BJJ, mountain biking, USPSA, beekeeping.

Balance? There isn't any. I obsess for periods of time on each one until I grow tired of it, and cycle to the next one in a never ending circle. All except for family, beekeeping and biking, they are my constants.

can you post a pic of the box in question? I might be able to tell whats happening by visual inspection. I've made almost all possible mistakes and continue to make some of them :) Why do you heat the box between acetone applications?

One last thing, I powder coated a couple of boxes yesterday, and the paint it's thicker in some parts more then others. Is that normal?

That is most likely a result of "hot flocking" (heating the box and then applying powder) when hot flocking the powder melts on contact, applying powder in the way is prone to build up. You will get much more consistent results(where thickness is concerned) if you can avoid hot flocking. It is really hard to get good results with tinted powders (i.e. candies) hot flocking, it usually ends up "framing".

All that being said there is nothing wrong with hot flocking it's just harder to get consistent results. There really is no reason to hot flock the base coat. It might be nessesary to hot flock the second coat if you don't have adjustable kv's or you don't have a grounding rod.

Lately I have been having lots of problems with the clear cracking over the waterslide decal so I am going to try spring regular lacquer over the final enclosure to avoid this issue.
 

Too thick and cracks in clear can be caused by undercure. If the clear was delaminating from the base, then it would be a lack of crosslinking between topcoat & basecoat.

Did you partial cure (oppose to full cure) the base coat? Most 2 stage powders it is recommended before a full cure top coat for best intercoat adhesion, except for chromes they need full cure.

I'm not sure how much the decal would interfere with the crosslinking but i haven't had any issues with clears over waterslides or vinyl decals. I suspect it is more related to undercure.

Next time it happens, take a razor to the clear & see if any chips off while you drag the blade along. Try to get some off. Take the chips or shavings & put them on a piece of sheet metal & put them through a cure cycle. If they melt & flow then the powder was definitely undercured.

Awesome build, awesome graphics and awesome layout :)

Is the laser etching deep enough to backfill? I've done a chem etch and backfilled with crayon before. Might be a different way to get a bright white in there.

Really great builds! Really nice how you made the apis buffered, looks stock, incredible.

Both look great! I'll bet that Apis was a major headache but it looks really clean inside IMO. Great graphic choice as well; especially the Apis!  ;D   I need one of those Apis boards. Does anyone know if there are any left?

I'm pretty sure Jimmy has plenty left ... he told me he thought he ordered enough to last a lifetime.
