Paint Station

9 posts in this topic

I decided it was time to make a spray booth. It is positioned under the window in the pantry, next to the beer cooler. The 8" diameter vent pipe will be hung out of the window. Hopefully the filter screen will stop enough overspray so I don’t get a colored streak down the side of the house.

The table height is a mere 26” and is designed around the stool and a comfortable working height. No point painting the table, as it is going to get messed up anyway. Room for the drying wheel to the right.

I already have a squirrel cage fan in the workshop and will be buying the same for the booth. It should be strong enough to suck the seeds from a pound of grapes. I can’t allow any paint debris in the house, as it is rented. For this reason, I will be using water based paints.

Their will be a filter frame in front of the fan, but not built yet. I cannot find any purpose made filter sheets, so I will be using a thin stretchy material that I found. I can adjust its filter capabilities by stretching and/or layering. It was very cheap and sold by the kilogram, so I bought 5Kg, enough for a few spares.

Still some work to do. Fit the fan and ducting, build the filter screen. Already have shelves to the right for supplies. Need to build airbrush holders, hairbrush holder, lure racks. Lighting and electrics need sorting out. I have a good design of an all in one hands free lure holder/mesh screen holder, in my head. If it works out, I will post this separately.

The compressor will be in a sound proof box and will be located outside on a very small balcony, to the right of the window. Not ideal, but the table is too low to encompass the soundproof box unfortunately. I will probably have to make a junction block for the air to the brushes.

So I thought I would throw it out to you guys for comments, before I get too far along, just incase I am missing something.

Looks like you've got a great start on your paint booth Dave. I'm just wondering how much stuff you had to rearrange to get your paint booth so "conveniently" located next to the beer fridge? :? Keep us informed on how it's coming.

Hey Dave,

How's it coming on the paint station?

Ben

Waiting on the fan, they are out of stock of the model I have designed for.

The combined swivelling lure holder and scale mesh frame holder is almost complete and looking good.

Nice design, however, I am somewhat disappointed that there is no Vortex Airflow Enhancer incorporated.

Ha! funny you should mention that Dan. I will be making up for the lack of vortices in my recent posts with my next project. I am working with Pete on modifications to a Thien cyclone vortex dust separator.
