Wanting to learn powder coating
Is there a way to learn how to powder coat from my house?Herbert Whaley

You can't learn to golf or ski from your house, and although powder coating is more intellectually based than sports activities are, there will always be aspects to such things where learning would progress faster and easier if you actually visited powder coating facilities.
But you can make significant progress from books or correspondence courses, and don't forget magazines. Nice color pictures of what facilities look like and problems look like can go a long way. Start with our list of "must-have books" and "must-have journals".

The British Coating Federation run a very good online training scheme. It's cheap and very informative.

Call the Magic Aire plant or one of the custom coaters in Wichita Falls and see if you can get a look at the powder line while it's running. Other than that you're pretty much stuck with books, tapes, and online stuff.
What exactly are you trying to do?
