I wonder if the coating used on commercially sold wire frames, is available to the public?

I think it's powder coating and is baked on. I know some people have picked up old stoves from the side of the road and used just for this purpose because once you bake the powder coating you can't use the stove for food.

Here's something about powder coating...

I Googled it and came across a few "powder coating at home" links also so it looks like you could do it yourself. ;)

I use one of these setups myself for the aircrafts. Dad and I created a 4ft x 4ft oven using old stoves from the side of the road and a box.

No, not powercoat, the ones I have, have a rubber or plastic coating on it. Similar to the Plasti-Dip stuff.
