My first build. Part II: The paint booth.
Posted by Manifoldhead on Saturday, March 7, 2020 9:24 PM

 

Howdy all,

 

 

Well, the paint booth project went very well. (I wish my model went together like this!)

 

It's not huge, I didn't want it take up a huge amount to space. It cost less than 100 dollars for all the materials and I spent about 8 hours building it. They were leisurely hobby hours and I enjoyed building it. Here are a few pictures in case anybody is interested. I added an air regulator so I can adjust the pressure from my compressor easily while painting and I can keep the compressor in another room. A couple of hooks for an air brush holder is handy. I used an 80cfm bathroom exhaust fan from home depot, and a filter from Ace hardware.

 

 A couple of extra outlets for lights or whatever.

 

It seems to do a good job sucking out the fumes and is quieter than I thought as well. That cheap vinyl hose on the brushwill be replaced soon as well.

The yellow paint is a more entertaining story for the next installment.

 

 Edit:

I had pictures in my word document but they didn't copy and I can't figure out how to upload pictures to this forum. Can you upload directly from a computer here? It is asking for a source but not offering an option to upload from my computer.
