Spray booths in the UK are pretty expensive, so when the Open University warehouse closed, where I was working, as a lot of stuff was being thrown I took away a large think composite cardbourd carry box that had been used to transport computer equipment for our summer schools.

I put it on a small table in my garden cabin allowing the lid to drop down in front. I then went to a Hardware warehouse and bought one of their last kitchen cooker hoods, ( they are all wall fitted, polished alloy units now)which has internal light and three strength extarctor fan. It also came with the alloy coated vent pipe, so I can put that outside through the door when I'm spraying. It cost just £40 all up. That was seven years ago.

Spray Booth mods

i bought a cheap spray booth from a quality chinese seller. it's a pretty good device, but one short coming was the extentable exhaust hose was held onto a 1 inch collar with a large press clip. it was hard to put the hose over the collar and hold it there until i could get the clip over the hose. a trip to the hardware store provided this fix. I found a 100mm end piece and screw on end cap. the hose fits nicely over the end cap and the screw in part makes attaching it easy.

I drilled out the end cap with the dremel cut off wheel and superglued it to the back of the collar of the booth

I put the other attachment onto the hose. i can now screw the hose onto the booth when needed

Here's the plumbing parts in place
