Thanks for the reply. Those are the exact holdfasts I have. I checked with a local shop and it would run about $20 to get them blasted and coated. I was wondering about the “tooth” factor, but figured the powder coating is lightly textured and could work.

hummmm….I’ve had mine in my shop for several years with no maintenance and no rust. Could be because I live in the desert or maybe because they are in constant use. Is your bench Oak?

Just a suggestion: if you do decide to powder coat take a cold chisel and put some very light grooves on the inside edge to help with the hold. Please post your results, I’d like to know.
