Just got my temp paint booth set up again for the winter in my wood shop.
I decided to try something else for ventilation, and it works great.
Using my dust collection system, I can quickly convert from spray booth
to wood work dust collection, with about 3ft of duct tape. The filter in the booth is a
furnace filter, and at $3, I think it's worth it. The fumes are pushed outside via that
hose through the window.

Excellent set up, I was thinking of making my own spray booth as well, was going to use a shop vac with furnace filter just like yours, want to put the suction input down at floor level.
I was also planning on putting another vent in one of the doors for fresh air intake to the shop, thought about heating that air also.
Your booth, does it have a sealed top or is it open?
I was thinking of leaving mine open so the air flow is top to bottom inside the booth.

Looks like a great settup but I would be a little concerned about a possible spark from the dust collector motor causing a fire with the paint fumes. Maybe these dust collector motors have to be made explosion proof since wood dust could also be a fire hazard. Just a thought for consideration.

Booth is closed up top.
I like your idea, of outlet at bottom.
as can be sen in pics, some is still settling on the floor, but at least not outside the booth.

I leave the building door open a crack, and the plastic flap door into the booth allows air flow into the booth.

I got the idea for making a booth for myself last yr, if I remeber right you and Massey Driver both posted pictures of your booths.
Someone told me yrs ago the the best place to take the air out of the booth was though floor vents???

I'd love to have a dust collector like yours though.

Yes, good point. A dust collection system must be grounded, because of the static electricity caused by the air flow. I had a scare a few years ago, and then
got educated about that.

Cool paint booth. I may have to build something like that to block the wind so the paint reaches the part.:bigrofl:

paint booth looks great. im sure u'll b finding all sorts of things 2 paint if u dont already have a list....lol. just a tip- a friend built 1 & used a wood stove 2 heat it (keeping the stove seperate & ducting it in of course) prob was, dry heat from the wood fire created a white glaze over all his paint jobs because the humidity levels were constantly changing. food for thought.....

Nice paint booth Will. Are you going to tell us what projects you plan to be painting this winter, or is it a surprise!

Yep Brian, suprises. We all like those right?:smile1:

No, actually, what's in the booth now is parts of the MF7E.
After that, the MF8E, but thats a bit down the road.

About cardboard on the floor. Good idea.
Too late here. I've got this funky rainbow affect happening, and I think
I'll just let that happen over the winter, and then repaint the floor next year.
