Default Powdercoating tubes

I remember a while back there was discussion about getting tubes powdercoated for doing clear and semi clear resin blanks. I ran into a flyer at a restaurant with an ad for an outfit here in the Atlanta area called Powder Coat Magic www.powdercoatmagic.com
From the looks of it a small outfit that might do small batches. Anybody hear of them?

I was thinking this kind of thing would be good for a local group to get together on and share expenses.

I also do my own. I bought my gun from eastwood.com around year end a couple years ago. I bought the single voltage gun on sale it was around 60 dollars. You need a cleaner to clean all before powder, powder to spray and a small toaster oven to cure, thats it! there is a few videos on youtube that shows how simple it is. When it cools from the oven after about a twenty minute cure time, it is ready to use. it is far easier than painting with spray paint.
