I don't know if I sent you the fluid bed instructions. If not PM me your e-mail and I'll get it out to you. Yes coffee filter will work on some powders.

Just wanted to give a Big Thanks to cadman for the build specs on the fluid bed. I built one today and it turned out great. I'm new to this, but what would be the ideal air flow amount? I've been adjusting on the needle valve and had some little "volcanos" which was throwing out paint dust. I turned it down to where they settled down, but wasn't sure of the appropriate range.
I'm using a brown paper bag for my screen.

Could I get the instructions as well? I am wondering about your screen name. Do you do CAD work? I am a 15 year CAD person myself here in SC. I have modeled with alot of 3D software. It really helps on all my projects. Thanks.

Yes the screen name Cadman came from the fact that I've worked on numerous cad and nc software. I am a sheetmetal designer and programmer. I have been doing this for about 30 years, the last 18 on cad. I started with Cadkey, then AutoCad, Metalsoft and Profold in between and now I'm using Solidworks for the last 5 years. Yes knowing cad and 3d solids makes designing much easier. I have designed some lead jig molds for my friends and myself and it has worked out great.

Thanks Cadman for the plans you sent me a week ago. I built a 2in. bed and get a lot of dust but just gobbed up paint on my jigs. 1/4 oz. I have watched a video from TJ's but mine dose not do that. I only get small volcanoes of paint. I am using a coffee filter. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? tks Ole
