I'm considering getting a 40" long 5 gallon tank and heater for parking long items that don't fit into my current setup. The ROI has always been on my mind with this purchase. I'd like to gauge interest from the group. Who would have immediate need of my services for items longer items such as barrels or longer receivers?

Parkerizing with Cerakote over it? How long is your current setup? 24-26" barrel, barreled action like a Winchester Model 70, or a long shotgun?

Or just parking for folks that would like it for a finish instead of their current situation of rust and don’t want to spend the money on a Cerakote finish.

I currently parkerize in a 8qt pot which is fine for handguns and C clamps.

What’s a tank cost? I may have something around here that would work.

When you park rifle barrels do you have to plug the barrel? I've heard the parkerize etches the rifling and makes them not as accurate? I'm not familiar with parkerize to know.

Always.

So.... could a flash hider, pinned to the barrel, be parked without affecting to whole barrel?

(Just the tip :bigsmile: )

I wouldn’t try it. Unless someone comes up with a way to isolate the rest of the assembly from vapor, it would be affected.

That incoming 870 receiver would do well parked.

A tank doesn't have to be very expensive, although when I looked around at commercial units most of them seemed way overpriced. You can have a local fab shop bend up a piece of stainless sheet and weld the corners; it's pretty basic and doesn't take long. I made my own but any fab shop with a brake and welding ability can do it. I made mine to easily fit a 24" barreled action and just use various baking pans for smaller stuff; I have been parkerizing my own stuff since ~2002 and found it's a simple process but very effective either on it's own or as a base layer for coatings. It's a more utilitarian appearance than bluing but much more durable and protective; it's definitely a good capability for any gunsmith shop.

A few years back I looked into buying two of the long skinny food service trays and tig weld them together. Would be about 44 inches and 40 bucks.

I hadn't considered that. That's a lot of weld though...
