Those books and magazines showed us how to build anything, from recumbent bikes, go-carts, auto body work to sailboats and sawmills, necessity is truly the mother of invention .

    4 PLY , No Problem !!

    I don't know about great minds , maybe slightly twisted might be more accurate :)Thanks

    Well THANKS

    As it is set up now it is taking two rolls and turning them into one. By removing the front belt and stretching the back belt over the two rear wheels and the drive wheel (crank arm) you can separate one roll into two, so the long answer to your question is yes it works both ways, that was the first question my oldest daughter asked.thanks for your support

    Thanks for your vote and I hope you got a chuckle out of it.Cheers

    3 Shop Organization Ideas

    It's definitely great to have a shop like this to work in, I don't own it but I still take pride in it because I got to set it all up from scratch. May your dreams someday be fulfilled that you too have an awesome shop.Maybe you can tell me the purpose of the upvote button , I have no idea what it does. Thanks for your comment, it made me smile

    Thank you for your kind words and I am so glad you were able to learn something new, It just goes to show that were never too old to learn some new tricks, I'm fairly new to this whole instructable thing ( 2 weeks ) and I am learning from other as well. So far I'm enjoying writing these instructables,and I think it's great that your involved with helping kids learn as a scout master. My four kid are all grown now ( still no grand kids yet ) but when they were young my wife and I were involved with Awana (boys and girls club ) run though our church ,and I know what you mean when take about the look of awe on a kids faces.Over the last 7 years my wife and I,and on the last trip my youngest son traveled to the Dominican Republic on mission trips.

I have been 4 times to work at an orphanage for young boys ,working on homes and a school. I tell you this because when you talked about cub scouts , it reminded me about all those boys in the orphanage who are probably about the same age as your cub scouts. Thanks again and Thank you for being a teacher to young minds . PS I now consider you a friend, and my wife thought your comment was awesome!!

I understand what your saying about some of the Instuctables that require a very high skill level to attempt, but I still look at them knowing full well , I'ts something I could never attempt to do but maybe I will learn something along the way I didn't know. Thank you again for your feedback ,in the future I will keep what your saying in mind about writing to your audience. Cheers

    Recirculating Air Spray Booth

    I'm glad people are finding my project interesting and informative. I hope my future instructables ( I think I'm hooked ) on various shop related projects, carts ,storage,and maybe some of the neat things I get to build, will go over as well . Thank you for your words of support,and your encouragement. Cheers and don't forget to vote

    I thought about the paint arrestor fabric and still might , I pulled out one of the pleated filters after spraying roughly 15 gallons of water borne , and there was some dust collected on the filter , most of it blew right off with compressed air . I think if we end up using it a lot ,it would probable be a good idea . with the exhaust blowing down seems to turn back toward the filters before it hits the floor , and so far dust has not been a issue.It sounds like you've done some finishing and I'm always open to comments and suggestions. Thank you for your input, and mabe your vote

    Thanks for your input , but please remember this was designed strictly for water borne finishes and not solvent based , which do require external exhaust and fresh air intake.This booth cleans and then reuses the air . I hope you can use my concept to help you build your own booth, to suite your own requirements.Cheers and thanks for your support.

    Recirculating Air Spray Booth

    Well It might be an issue if I was located in the USA , and there were more than myself using it , or I was spraying flammable liquids, but for the occasional use and only using water bourne finishes. And proper masks I am not overly concerned. Thank you for your concern

    Thank you for your comment , this is my first instructable and the response has been incredible, contemplating doing more on some of the other items I have constructed for the shop.I'm going to try and answer every one in the evenings.Thanks again for your support, and your vote i hope

    I know what you mean by dust everywhere. I’ve worked in plenty of shops over the years with multiple employees and you’re right there’s dust everywhere all the time. I am very fortunate that this shop is basically A two man operation and because I was able to design the shop and the dust collection system our shop stays pretty clean as for the spray booth. Having it enclosed inside a pressurized room helps to prevent any in flow of dust. Because we only spray on occasion, Prior to spraying we blowout the area and vacuum let the booth run for awhile before we actually start spraying . For most shops this might have to be in a sealed designated room for it to work properly. Thanks for your interest and mabe you’re vote.

    Enjoy your retirement !!! I’m working on the freedom 85 plan🙄 myself and I ‘m not sure if they had water bourne lacquer 15 years ago , as good as it is today.Thanks for your interest and mabe you’re vote.Cheers 🍺

    Recirculating Air Spray Booth

    To be honest with you ,I used a external drive fan that I have had around forever I wasn't sure of the cfm output. I new that with the 1 Hp motor and no restriction I guessed it might be pushing around 4-6 thousand cfm . I had no idea what the restriction of pulling and pushing the air thru all the filter would do to my face velocity. But by using a external motor I could always alter the pulley size to increase or decrees , the air flow. It turned out that I have more than enough draw to pull the over spray. And because the air is filtered and recirculated ,the only air exchange is the air coming into the room thru the heater from the shop. sorry i can't give you exact numbers.
