Pretty cool stuff.

Had not expected the glove-box front, though it makes sense.

A dedicated space is worth its weight in gold, even if dank and dark.  Those latter two conditions being emminently curable to need. 

Also, a dedicated space has the luxury of being able to be "straightened up" simply by closing the door--which can be important both to domestic bliss, and to not having to discombobulate the modeling process.

There is a feature which has vexed me over the years.  What I have always wanted was an overhead vent fan, not per se filtered, but for moving glue solvent fumes up and away from the workspace. 

To my thinking it would want a couple things.  Like the intake being around 50-75% the are of the desk below, and having a very low "draw."  As in about 10-20 cfm, tops, this would move odors, but not make a breeze.  THis would have a benefit in keeping dust away, too.

In running the calculations, it turns out you need a large fan rather than a small one, which uses inertia to move the air steadily, and also slowly.  So, a 250cfm fam with a motor controller to step the rpm down, but with a big cage would be wanted.

The larger question always ran aground on what to do with the exhaust.  Sending it outside being ideal for odors, but needing make-up air to complicate things.

Putting the motor near the exhaust rather than the intake can lower the noise at the workspace, but it--the desing--wants to have two 'reducing' areas to accomodate the bits.

Humble beginnings 

Below is my 30 year old contraption made from mostly hardware store materials. Such as nuts, screws, aluminum angle stock, plexiglass, and a few other things. I built it while  living in an apartment and I designed it so that it was mostly a closed system. It is not entirely closed because I wanted some air to flow through the booth.

My reasoning for a closed system was to serve two main puposes. That being, low fuming, and low dust drawn into the system. But mostly, to reduce fuming. I vented the system through a window insert I could easily install and remove. The insert was made from particle board. At the time, I used a simple squirrel motor fan that I picked up cheap from a local science store. I estimate the cost of materials for this booth at around $100. Not cheap for the time, but much cheaper than buying a commercial unit.

The front panel can be left open or I can choose to spray with it closed. 

The system worked well but when I moved into a condo, venting required a longer reach, and the meager squirrel blower I had was woefully inadequate.

In comes the next upgrade. I purchased a portable booth, pulled the blower assembly, and I attached it to the back of the booth. I think I paid $120 ish for that. Suction improved but over time... I began to realize the meager computer fan was not up to the task either. It was this assembly that I found on the floor last Sunday.

The third upgrade was when I purchased an in-line blower. I mounted it at the end of the line. You can see it in the first image. So, I used both blowers in tandem. This did help, but only marginally. I was able to get by with it. 

A few posts back I mentioned revamping my Condo. Below is a bench that I had in room where my work office station is. Originally, my intent for that bench was to use it for model assembly. The hope was to keep me out of the rather dank basement. For some reason, that never really took hold. I tried it for awhile but the bench area is too small for my needs. What is worse, it was not really good to work at from a sitting position. It can be done, but it is not the greatest. It was too high and it's designed to work from a standing position. That said, it should be fine for my airbrush work. So... it sat, taking space, collecting dust. Thus, I moved it to the basement and rather than using a folding table I will use the more solid bench. The now defunct folding table may one day be repurposed into a model photography station. 

In this image you can see the bench is positioned in place and the old booth is gone. The latter is in pieces waiting for disposal. Good bye old friend.

A total reset

Assembly begins.

Short of the mods that I will do, out of the box is done.



So what did I buy? Click on the link.

https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/71koZT3V4iL.pdf

 

And why did I choose this one?

1. It offers a working space similar to what I had before. Though, slightly smaller. I was a bit concerned about that but once I got it assembled, it seems perfectly adequate. Truth is, my home made unit had more space than I needed.

2. The price point is on the low end when one moves beyond the commercially available portables. And in my opinion, this is a major step up in value from those.

3. Reviews are mixed about air draw. Some say it is not good enough, others say it's fine. I tested it a little and it is definitely better than what I had. The blower assembly uses a much larger fan and it does seem to draw. But... I expect that might change rapidly once the filter starts to clog. Don't take that to the bank, though. I won't know until I use it more. 

4. The build quality seems solid. Certainly, much better than my wiggly booth.

5. This booth has a flat face to its front. That will allow me to fabricate and use an opening door, like on my old unit. In short... build a mostly closed system that can be used either way.

Final thoughts

1. The booth needs lighting. They should include that but don't. I will purchase and install an Led light bar.

2. I was mentioning air draw. Interestingly, when I ran the unit and I placed a piece of plexy over the face, not totally covering, suction literally pulled a LARGE sheet of paper from the bottom of booth and into the fan filter. The paper is almost as large as the bottom floor. I was amazed. My old one would never do that. So... this baby sucks! Big Smile

3. I am excited about this upgrade because the potential is there. Btw. I am fairly certain I will remove the inline fan. I don't think I need it and to be honest, I am not convinced that  the two don't sort of fight each other. Removing it will eliminate one dangling cord. Additionally, once I get lighting installed internally, I can remove the dangling lamp. Either way, the lamp will do no good. It was only good with the clear plexy of my old booth. Lastly, the dangling outlet-strip will go too. My bench has a built in outlet. I just need to run a cord from the power socket to the bench.

The whole aesthetic will change.

And so there you go. That is more than you ever wanted to know about my spray booth journey.

Hey PJ, funny you should ask. I was just working on images. I figured I'd make my side project part of this thread. 

And yes... 30 years is decent. I could have kept it going but hey... life is too short. I don't spend much money on myself so... I figured... what the hey... treat myself.

More info to come.

And about the charriot. If I am being completely honest, my spirit is indeed dampened. Any project that goes too long, I get bored with. I am already pining for another project. But hey... I know myself. Guess what. That next project will go too long too and then I will be pining for another project. Nothing gets done! Lol. So... using logic that Spock might understand... I must push through it! Truthfully... just too many life issues distracting me.

Bakster,

Hope the new spray booth serves you in good stead. 30 years is an amazing run for anything.  The timing wasn't necessarily fortuitous but I'm glad to hear it hasn't damped your interest in finishing the chariot. 

Care to share the specs of the new booth?  Not that I am looking to replace my current cardboard box and vacuum cleaner, but it would be interesting to learn what you liked about the replacement.

Like when the 2nd cousins were visiting the 1st cousins, and realize I was "just over there in Arlington."  Hey, family is amily, even when extended.  And, ok, it's "just over" in Metroplex terms, so, 35 miles/45 minutes--but, at least it was nearly all tollway driving, so not quite so many idiots on the road.

And another extended  weekend flew by. 

Yesterday, I was lounging in front of the TV when I heard a loud bang. It sounded like metal. First thought was some pots and pans shifted in the kitchen. Also, I thought, maybe something in the basement, but what could it be. Did I jump up to check? Nope. Whatever it was, I will find out later.

One of my goals for the day was to work on my spraybooth. It needs work.

Later, I go downstairs and what do I find? The fan assembly fell off the back of my booth. Mind you.. this is a homemade contraption that spans 30 some years. I fixed the issues but it bugged me. Why am I struggling with this thing. I decided to do some research and boom... I ordered a "made for said purpose" booth. I still plan to modify it but this should work better than what I  built 30 some years ago when I was poorer. Kind of funny the blower fell off just hours before I planned to work on it. Seems like a devine message. Like, get rid of this thing, and do something different.

Staycation

After that drive yesterday, I'm done with driving this w/e.

Coming up I-35 (I-45 was bad enough going down) it was like everyone was driving angry.

But, I have all the fixin's for a lovely jambalaya for tomorrow (y'all are welcome to my share of the pavo).  Le bon temps rollez, if not very far.  :)

That is a lot of driving, Capn. Not my favorite thing to do either. Windshield time is a major time suck.

I am not working on the model today but I am revamping my house some. That includes my spray booth. Trying to bring some order back into what has been chaos these last several years. 

Anyhow, back to work.

I am on vacation this week and it is like the universe was waiting for me to be off because each day is filled with other priorities.

I keep longing for next Wednesday, even knowing that each of those days will vanish into the ether in the blink of an eye.

Mind, I'm coping with having to get up tomorrow at 0500 to drive to a football game, so there;s that 400 miles to get in.  Then, Teuesday, I have a site visitr in Houston to get in, so, there's another 600 miles round trip.  So, I'll not be traveling after Tuesday if I can help it.

My bench is in my garage.  Winters in the Pacific Northwest are notoriously wet.  A couple of years ago, doing a build in the winter, I had problems with a clear coat crazing badly.  Reading all this makes me think it was due to high humidity as well. 

Glad this came up.  It's something I'll have to keep an eye on.  Probably should get some sort of hygrometer for my garage to read the Relative Humidity.  Could act as an early warning system.

Bakster, any new news or waiting on getting a dehumidifier before proceeding?

 

 

Hey PG, yeah that might have been your issue as well.

 

To your question: Sadly, I have not purchased one yet and worse, I have had zero benchtime. I am on vacation this week and it is like the universe was waiting  for me to be off because each day is filled with other priorities. 

Ah well...maybe on the weekend.

I was running a dehumidifier

Well, y'all up there in the northlands are about to enter heating season is a big way, and everything but steam heat will likely want a humidifier, lest it get too dry.

It's a crisp 56°F today in DFW, which was feeling just a touch chill while walking the dog just now.  Mind, it was 78° about the same time on Wednesday, which may explain the chill.

Hey Capn, I knew I can count on you to expound. Good stuff. Come to think of it. Probably, the last time I sprayed that paint I was running a dehumidifier. The thing died on me and i am without. I am more convinced now than ever that I need to get another one. I am on vacation next week, yea, and a good time to look for one.

Maybe get some bench time and into more debacles.

You could feel the dampness in the air. It was thick. I believe it was the moisture content that hazed the glue.

CA responds to water vapor--literally humidity--which is different from water droplets (unlike polyurea "gorilla" glue, which activates in the presence of water).

Airbrush assuredly responds to air pressure and RH.

Consider that an a/b uses compressed air to lift and atomize paint, which then expands on leaving the nozzle to eventually equalize with ambient.

Compressed gasses, when expanded, always have some amount of phase change.  This is not as dramatic as the phase change refrigerant gasses go through. 

Air with more water vapor "holds" more heat when compressed, and give up that latent heat on beign decompressed.  This is a key reason for water traps on compressors or compressed air tanks. 

That heat exchange can affect ambient humitidy, and it can affect the atomized paint as well.  Which also affects the solvents used in the paint, too.  (This was the brilliance of using xylene as the volitile solvent in Floquil paint, its liberation helped keep the paint in its "useful" range really, really, reliably.)

Our use, in modeling, of "water soluable" acrylics is adding water--if oft in suspension with other thinner chemistries--to a water-affected event.

Now, on the face of it, this makes for an excellent argument to use "dry" gasses like CO2, Nitrogen, or the like as airbrush propellants.  Their expansion has a lower thermal gradient, and far less interaction with ambient water vapor.  Now, Ar/N2/CO2 all have issues for modelers, difficulties as well as benefits.

The reality of it is that we each get to run test shots and spend as much time replicating previous paint performance as getting paint applied.

It's a complicated dance.

Man oh man... that was a struggle. So, I am thinking, the paint might have thickened some since last use because before, it had sprayed perfectly straight from the bottle. I had no issues back then. Why the Paasche worked better I can only guess. Maybe it sprays at a higher volume of paint. The finish came out well but I did get some minor dust.

 

Well, "ambient" is different now than it was just three or four months ago. 

In my case the house is very different.  Back in June, a/c was running abut 45 minutes of every hour, and was working hard stay 20°F less than outside--so, inside of the house was running 79-81°F.  But, at very low humidity dues to the a/c running so much.

Right now, a/c runs perhaps 10 or 15 minutes in an hour, and the indoor temp is much closer to 72-73°F, and the humidity has increased accordingly (I'm reading about 31%RH right now).  My thick CA is thicker than normal; the thin is scaring "light medium."  And, of course, some of those tubes are near a month old, too.

Dust is a vexation no matter what.  Unless you get enough exhaust air volume to pull a negative pressure (or pump in a positive pressure) in your work space.  Which is tricky, as a mere 1/2" WC pressure difference will cause headaches in 80% of the population.

Negative is better while sanding; positive better when drying--this dance is complicated.

 

Wow, Capn, you are a mind reader. You know, I have been thinking about this. I paint in my basement and temps can vary, so does the humidity. I don't run a dehumidifier and I probably should.

That would bring up an interesting discussion. Just how much, in particular, does humidity affect airbushing performance? It sounds like you are in the camp of yes...it does. If I am reading that right. I have not given it much thought until recently because I have often read where people have problems is in super dry climates. I have not seen much about the inverse. But I tell ya... I am beginning to wonder that it plays a bigger role than I think.

Regarding the dust.. good points. I think too my booth is way overdue for a cleaning. I have been lazy about it. The other thing is... the longer you spray... the higher chance you will capture dust in the process. Yet another reason why I like to spray as quick as possible. 

Also a good point about the CA. Mine is fairly old. Here is an interesting nugget. Several years back I pondered why my CA was drying hazy when with previous uses it was clear. The connection I made is this. That particular day outdoor humidity was super high, and I had windows open, including the door to the basement. You could feel the dampness in the air. It was thick. I believe it was the moisture content that hazed the glue. Because guess what. Subsequent uses, no haze, under normal humidity. That said, I would not paint under those conditions but none the less... I am sure there is humidity in the air. At least until the furnace or AC runs more. And under the current conditions that I am in, neither are running much.

One must be a scientist to build models. Stick out tongue

Well, it's 81°F here at 1341CST and meant to stay that way until Thursday, when the next front rolls in and we have 60s for highs.

This is not ideal weather for anything affected by humidity.  And the fact that it's super-bright at 0700, and near dark at 1700 now, will make for complicated modeling.

 

 

Surprisingly, decent here today too. Mid 60s, dropping to high 40s, then bouncing around to upper 50s again. Can't complain. The recent snow is long gone.

Well.. the ongoing saga continues. As you know, I stripped the paint. I used the opportunity to do more filler work. I tell ya, I find filler a struggle. Especially, when I use CA. I might need to rethink the stuff. Or at the least, find the best applications for it. Maybe I will migrate back to using spru-goo more and/or thick primer. Pretty sure I will.

The tub was primed again and yesterday, I sprayed gloss black. The black used is Alclad. The stuff worked great months back but boy, having some issues this go of things. Testing it first on spoons, I was still getting the bullseye marks. Usually, only when I sprayed heavier coats. And... they were not washed in dish soap. The issue is the paint. I need the heavier coats to draw out the gloss. I plan to spray a chrome/metal in some areas, I need the black and it must be immaculate. 

I must have gone through 25 test spoons before I came to a working consensus. What I came to, what worked best, I thinned the paint with Mr Color Lever. Then, I switched to my Paasche. The combination gave me consistency where I could take the plunge.

Man oh man... that was a struggle. So, I am thinking, the paint might have thickened some since last use because before, it had sprayed perfectly straight from the bottle. I had no issues back then. Why the Paasche worked better I can only guess. Maybe it sprays at a higher volume of paint.

The finish came out well but I did get some minor dust. I will probably try to remove those. Then, it's off to the metalic.

This is a crazy dance and I am gonna need more luck as I move forward. It is turning out to be so much more difficult than I expected. This should have been a no brainer. Not even close!

The end result is often far less a thing than the struggle to get to that point. There are those who maintain that the journey is more important than the destination. I'm not necessarily one of those people, as I prefer a more "medium" answer.

But, each of us is an individual, and we each can find our own "Goldilocks" answer.
