As a retired collision technician and tech school instructor I wanted a hobby where I could use my expertise but on a smaller scale. I started restoring Tonka’s. Not having a controlled environment where I could spray 2 stage paint I turned to the rattle cans. Wanting a more durable finish I started to investigate powder coating, looking at entry level equipment. Passing over the HF and Eastwood options in my search I came across Columbia Coatings. Through my email and phone inquiries I was very impressed and ended up getting the Hyper Smooth 2 system with the upgrade. My purchasing experience with Columbia Coatings has been a very positive one. From their email/phone support to their fast efficient shipping they’ve earned my loyal support as a very satisfied customer. Since my initial equipment purchase I’ve ordered a variety of powders that were shipped and delivered in a very timely manner. Satisfied 110% with this company!
