Onsite Spray Booth: New and Improved

I call this the Mark 10 RTC Fume Sucking Wind Tunnel. It is the result of a rather simple modification suggested and implemented by Randy Redfern ( customer & general contractor).

The full name is: Mark 10 Redfern Turbo Charged Fume Sucking Wind Tunnel. Because it

is about 10 times more effective than my previous set up which was the same thing sans the

masking paper directional fume sucking modifier.

These next two shots illustrate the fume sucking power of the new fan set up. What a difference a little bit of

paper makes. Note how the plastic is billowing out from the walls.

This next shot shows the plastic barrier wall we put up to confine the over spray to that

area of the room. Note the over spray piled up at the base of the plastic wall.

These next two shots show an auxilary fan that pulls fumes off the drying racks as the doors

gas off during the drying process.

The following shots show the effectiveness of the filters and fans.

And the results.

Here are some thumbnail shots of the room we turned into a spray booth. Notice that all the walls

are covered in plastic and the windows all have filters. A very effective set up.


About jody toole

Jody Toole began his career in the painting and finishing industry in the early 1970's. In 1978 he was issued Contractor's License # 357067 (Class C33 Painting & Decorating) by the state of California. At this time he and a partner ran a painting & finishing business. In 1986 Mr. Toole, along with his partner, co-authored a book for painting contractors- Paint Contractor's Manual. As of this writing Paint Contractors Manual is still in print and to date has sold almost 40,000 copies. Today Mr. Toole runs Jody Toole's Professional Finishes as the sole owner. When asked to describe what his company does this is what he had to say- " We put color on wood. We hand mix stains and glazes. We do color matching, distressing, antiquing, refinishing, painted finishes and paint & glaze finishes. Some of the 'looks' we create are Tuscany, French Country, Italian Classic, Rustic, and traditional paint & glaze finishes." And his guiding philosophy- " Get the color right. Above all else, get the color right. And then get the "look." And when these two are right and your customer is beaming then give them a long-lasting durable finish."
