KKUSA what do you mask the bearing tube/stator ends with for a hot process, like powder coat?
Kapton tape!!!! Just peel it away before it cools completely. It can take quite a bit of heat.
If you are sprinkling the powder on, do it fast so as not to let the stator cool too much.
Jackerbes, I guess it would be possible, once you have flowed the powder to use a heat gun or the plastic welder to reflow imperfections etc. I would do it before the stator cools from initial coating though, as once its cool it takes more heat to reflow, and may actually burn.
