    Heres an odd thought, i know your suppost to heat a high heat painted part in the oven as so the paint will harden. Im not to excited about getin the house smellin like burnt paint, so how bought the gas grill? think it will work

    I personally think the gas grill isn't such a great idea - not too much control over the temp, and the whole open flame/paint fumes thing doesn't inspire much confidence in the method. But hey, that's just me...

    If the part's not too big, you could pick up a yard-sale toaster oven to use for heat curing.

    umm.. Everytime I have done that the house never smelled like paint. I let the part dry first though.

    Refinished a buddies' AK47 in the oven with hiheat paint. Never would have know it was in there.

    another use for the wood stove!!

    I use my 55 gallon barrel wood stove to "cook" more than snacks in my shop!--I often put freshly painted items next to it,or hang them from a coathanger wire,to force dry them--I painted my plow frame with old oil base rustoleum,that usually takes hours to dry,next to the stove it was bone dry and hard as a rock in 45 minites!..
    .I like having the stove(s) for heat(I have 2 of them,one is a vertical,homemade one,and the other is made from the kits you can buy to convert the barrel to a stove,that lays down horizontally)--and I can burn all the cardboard boxes,motor oil containers,even used oil in small amounts,with no smoke or smell,,and some of our household trash and newspapers to help heat the shop,and save money on landfill costs...They can be a pain to keep full of wood though--some days I spend more time finding and cutting wood,and feeding the stove,than I spen actually working on my truck!:p:

    I've also heated bearings up on the stove that required a press fit--just leave them on it until the grease in them starts to sizzle,put on your welding gloves,pick them up,and they slide right on nice,with no hammering --this was a real time and money saver when I was fixing lawn tractors,tecumseh motors had timken roller bearings on the cranks that can be a PITA to install the usual way....My friend at the junkyard once put an exhaust manifold in the stove and got the fire roaring--about 10 minites later,he fished it out of the bed of coals,and unscrewed the manifiold studs and emission tubes right out like nothing!..its almost like having a forge!!.:crazy:
