Smile homemade paint booth

Hi . i got bored this weekend waiting on parts so i built this.
Cost 120.00 to build but i had a fan from an old furnace.

The fan is in the rear collector part .
Its vented out the top through eve of shop.
120.00 so worh the price of saving my lungs.

Re: homemade paint booth

Good choice man... Breathing those fumes ain't good for you. Also makes it a hell of a lot easier to do a nice clean paint/clear job. I lined mine with plastic drop cloth; it makes it easier to clean up after or just tear it down and put some new plastic up...

Re: homemade paint booth

Cool. So it has some sort of updraft that takes away the fumes? Does make up air come in through the filters in the back? Also, how do you seal off the entry to keep dust from getting in there?

One thing I'm concerned about is if by "vented through the eave" you mean the soffit? If so, that's generally considered a poor way to vent things because what you vent there is often pulled right back in. You should ideally vent through the roof.

lol. my soffit is sealed unlike a house so the only air exit point is the vent.

i do hvac for a living so im pretty keen on air movement.

yes there is a furnace fan in the collector box that draws the air through the filters and out leaving the paint on the filters.

it doesnt have a dust problem because after 5 seconds of fan rnning the dust that can be pulled through the fan is all out of the room

now if i was nasa i would line the room and spend 5,000,000 on a clean room like used to make rockets but im not. it does a perfect job for what i need and yes makes a nice clean DUSTFREE finish.

thanks for the interest in great detail though guys.

the air is moving at 600cfm incase you guys need that info to concur with.

also it doesnt need plastic because the paint only hits the filters even if i tried to hit the walls.

Hi check out sullys garage on youtube.
He made on with a 2by4 frame plastic and a box fan . it has wheels to move it and is simular to mine but more garage friendly ad cheaper to build.
