PostSubject: Painting Exhaust Hood   Painting Exhaust Hood Icon_minitimeWed Jan 08, 2020 5:31 pm

I've considered getting a painting exhaust hood for a while. Tired of painting rattle can outside or the limited airbrush I've done in my basement. The problem I hemmed and hawed at was the sizes available and the price. Soooo. I've built one. It is 22 inches wide. 13.5 inches high. I still have to attach the bottom and that will extend 20 inches from the back. 6" hose in the back. My cost so far? $10 for the stack boot, 15 for the car cabin filter. All the rest came out of the metal dumper at work or had on hand.
Any suggestions on how to make this better??

Suggestion 1. Make Dean paint your tanks Smile

JK. Looks good. Honestly the filter is more for keeping the flammable bits out of the electric fan motor in the sucker fan. Buy a couple 12V "Booster" HVAC fans and hook them up to a 3c lipo (with alarm).

You can use a kitchen fan hood , hook it up to a 110 power cord ( more power) cover the hood  filter intake with a free flowing disposable filter material to catch paint so the motor bearings don't get gummed up.
Make a wood box to sit it on top of.
You could buy a cheap one or find one that some one is changing out during a Reno ..or keep you eye out during garbage day you may come across one..
If you know a place that does kitchen renos you could ask them if they come across one.
I have build three paint booths like this in the past.
Good luck

I had thought of the old stove hood. Pretty good idea actually. I didn't have access to an old one at this time though. You would have good light from that as well!
As for the hose, this one gets hooked to a dryer hose and fan that exhausts out the side of my shed. The fan has a variable output up to 630 cfm. The same hose I use in the shed when running mowers and motors.

I had one of these when they were like $60 on Aliexpress now they are over $100-$200 each. They are good for 1/35 scale but a tad to small for 1/16. Usually I have to paint them in pieces. You can in theory join two of these together but then the depth becomes the issue.

Junked mine when I moved.

I had seen them. Yeah. $100+ US. And only 16". That is why I made mine 22" wide. How useful was the turn table that came with it?

The turntable is too small for 1/16. Didn't use it at all.
