Has anyone built their own airbrush spray booth? I'm looking for any ideas or plans that might be available. I have purchased a 250 CFM Dayton Blower 4C447 from Grainger

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/items/4C447

I would like to have the exhaust go through a hose to a baffle mounted in a window. That way I can exhaust directly outside and take down when done spraying. I would like the booth to be portable enough that I can store it when not in use. Should the blower be mounted on the top, bottom, back, or sides for best results?

Mount on the back, Model Railroader had plans to construct one using that or a similar blower and sheet galvanized about 10 years ago.

Here is a portable one, not as rugged of course: http://www.housatonicrr.com/FoldingBooth.htm

Think this is it:


The Paint Shop Spray Booth

Model Railroader 1988-01 Andy Sperandeo pg. 128
Complete plans for building your own spray booth from galvanized steel, with construction photos, including ductwork and electrical wiring.




Guess that's Jan 1988, library may have a copy

Get a cheap tent, cut a hole in the side and sew elastic around the hole to fit around the blower/filter intake, zip it up, and go to town. When you're done, take it down and store it in its bag.

Thats my idea, ymmv.
