Title: Spray Booth
Post by: colin on April 08, 2012, 07:35:14 PM
I purchased one of these from the Model show at Shepton Mallet the other week. Tried it out today and just want to let others know that i think it is a excellent product and works very well, I have no connection with this website and the item is available from other suppliers but these were the best price.

As Bill said, a good booth at a good price.  My requirements were somewhat between these two size extremes, so I have two cheap Asda shower curtains suspended from the workshop ceiling on a "D" shaped track rail.  Encloses and covers the workbench.  Can handle hulls up to 1.5m long.  Draws away into the corner when not in use.  Cost under 10 Quid.  Three big windows for ventilation.

I use a 12ft by 7ft perspex roofed lean to attached to my garden shed, it's open on two sides so plenty of ventilation and keeps most airborne particles off the paint work ! Loads of space to move around the model when spraying as well (unless of course it's a 12ft model !)  %) {-) {-)

Love your booth Bill, can't fit it into my workshop though.  As I said mine was between the teo extremes of Colin's and yours.
Scoop:  Nice arragement, but indoors is less subject to damp days perhaps.

PS:  If things are going slow, if you've clicked send then usually it will appear OK after the next refresh.
