spray booth option

Postby Susan Cox » Fri Jan 02, 2004 11:38 am

I'm building a spray booth to use with my air brush. I'll be using micas and enamels. I can't vent it to the outside, so could I connect it to my sand blaster vacuum which has a hepa filter in it? Or would this contaminate the blasting grit?

No. You can't paint with the sound of a shop-vac nearby. It would drive you insane.

I made a spray booth with filters from a red-devil vaccuum cleaner hepa filters and a squirrel-cage blower I bought from eBay. Works OK. Got photos if you want them.

I'd like to see pictures! Ready this winter to attempt airbrushing. Do you need Hepa filters and how do you vent. I will be doing it in shop if possible with no airvents, but can work outside if necessary

I can't give expert (or safe) advice about venting and filtering, but here's what I do: I use hepa filters from a portable vacuum cleaner (red devil) with some prefilter material in front of it to catch most of the pigment nastiness. I use hepa files because the paint I use is toxic. I also wear a respirator and goggles while spraying. Below is a picture of the tabletop booth I made. I work alnost exclusively on 2D stuff, so I paint on an easle inside the booth, with the glass stuck-up with wax.

If any stained glass painters read this, please try not to die from envy of my Louisville mini-Slugger mahlstick laying on the table in front of the booth. Sometimes its tough being so cool.

You better lock up that Louisville mini-Slugger. It's going to be a collectors item when the Emerald Ash Borer gets finished with all the ash trees. :shock:

We have them in Columbus now, next year they will be knocking on your door looking for the bat.

The Southern Pine borer is taking down my stomping grounds at the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Dogwood Anthracnose will eliminate that species in our lifetime, I've heard. Like Bill Bryson says, what happens when when the generic 'tree' disease appears? Which bird species prefer the Kudzu/Honeysuckle forest? At least a few I hope.

The people in my neighborhood are taking down the last of the Elms when they die and replacing them with Londen Plane, Silver maple or other fast growing short-lived trees. (But we can't wait that long to enjoy it!, they say). Our neighborhood is noted for old hardwood trees, for now.
