The heat had no effect on my coil springs but did effect my compressed 160 springs and these were Bridger traps so they were super strong to begin with. If you go there just do one for starters.

Now I'm thinking. If a guy just took his coni springs off and powder coated the frame, that would solve the loss of strength. Then you would still have to treat the springs with something. Diluted latex maybe. The idea of a one time only trap treatment is very appealing. Depending on price.

Like I said I had It done with the springs compressed. The springs may not be effected if they were left un set.

Well I had to try. I started with one pound of powder coat. $27.39 per pound Powder coated one trap. 14.71 oz. of powder coat after. Now if my figuring is right it would cost $20.40 to coat 1 duke 1.5 coil frown I can not tell any difference in the springs, if theres any at all I cant tell it.

I had a freind in Pennsylvania looking at this a few years ago. He came up with a ballpark figure of $18.00 per dozen on smaller foothold traps. So, I think your figures are indeed accurate.

NOW I'm confused.
One of you is saying that it will take $20.40 to do One 1 1/2 coil and the other Is saying It would take $18.00 to do a doz small traps and your saying It's about the same price?

You must mean 1 doz traps and about 1oz of powder per trap Right.

$27.39 / 16=$1.71
$1.71 X (16-14.71)=$1.71 X 1.29=$2.21
$2.21 X 12=$26.52

Add labor and applicable sales tax and I think we have ruled out powder coating as a viable method to treat traps

Lets say It cost $3.00 to do one 160 or 220 body grip. And that trap[ lasted you 10 years. look at the time and money you would save over that time if you never had to treat those traps over that period of time.
The one draw back Is that you would have to do this with new traps since rust Is a no no when powder coating,at least that what I have been told.
I'm glad I did mine that way years ago whis I would have done them all.
