Jack and the Spray Booth
Jack, reading this & trying with no success to visualize it, I think -- PERFECT project for a pod cast...

Dan, I just sold my BIG spray booth and will now build a small one that has a lexan see-through panel from a screen door as the front. It will be hinged at the front top of the booth to swing up back out of the way when not wanted. It will when vertical leave a 6 to 8 inch gap at the bottom, enough room for me to reach under it to work with my acid bath or do small spray jobs. The back will have a baffle with holes all over it (I will try pegboard) to keep the velocity high at each opening and well spread out. I hope to get by with a bathroom exhaust fan. 15 years ago I used to have a home made booth framed up like a closet and covered with drywall. Built in was a benchtop and a 24 inch through the wall fan with closeable louvers on the outside. The front was about 5 feet wide and had rigid plywood panels that could close off most of the front opening. I stood in front of the gap between panels to shoot paint. I could move to the left or right by shifting the panels and still keep the front opening small with good velocity past my head. I'd love to hear others ideas.
