    bzer..... that pic would be a great thing and I thank you in advance for helping out in this area. Maybe if it's not too much trouble, post it in the thread ( along with this one if you'd like) for pictures of that kinda stuff? It's looking a little nekkid in there and we could sure use some of those " picture is worth 1,000 words" kinda posts. Thanks...... Russ



    ( this goes for the rest of you too..... wouldn't mind seeing the set-ups of what makes those stunning results we see in the album)

    That is a very small space. If you can add the 2 feet it would be a good idea. Put the blast cabinet between the oven and spray booth. As for the compressor...Maybe you can build a small outside the shed "house" for it. That would increase your usable space and keep the noise down. Just a frame and plywood walls and a pitched roof for it...Then drill an access hole for your air line to come through the wall. With a piece of pipe and a few couplers you could even build a manifold for a few airlines with the regulators right on the lines. This will allow you to keep all your air using equipment organized and most importantly out of the way. You could probably setup the manifold very cheap, and be able to run your hoses out of the way to conserve space. The manifold will also give you a good place to mount a water seperator. I'll try to get a pic or post a drawing of what I'm talking about.

    I don't think so, if you plan on filtering the booth or at least exhausting it outside of the shed, then you will not have a powder cloud inside. To be honest with you, in order to have an explosion you will need a massive amount of airborne powder, I don't believe anyone that sprays parts one by one is going to achieve this. I am not saying you cannot have an ignition, but I think it would be a very small (but alarming!) localized thing. Not this giant blow the doors off the shop kinda thing I am thinking of lol.

    I AM LOOKING AT THIS FROM A QUALITY / SAFETY STANDPOINT...NOT AS MUCH AS A TRIPPING ISSUE BUT MORE AS A EXPLOSION OR CRUD ON MY PARTS....YES I DO REALIZE THAT IT WILL BE VERY CRAMPED BUT AS YOU SAY I HAVE TO DO WITH WHAT I HAVE AVAILABLE...SO FROM A SAFETY / QUALITY STANDPOINT ....IS THE STOVE BEING IN THAT TIGHT OF A SPACE NEXT TO MY BOOTH A SAFETY HAZARD?.....THANKS CHRIS

    Let me give you a little advice..........nothing can be big enough! If you built a 90' x 90' you would still be complaining of tripping over something.....trust me. A 10' x 10' eh? well are you doing this for just personal use? That is going to be tight, you are doing your blasting in a blast cabinet correct? You will need a spray booth, oven, blast cabinet, table to mask and plug parts, rack of some sort to hold parts while cooling, place to clean parts, and an air compressor. You know what size these things are you have, can you picture all of this stuff in your shed and still have some room to walk around? I am not downing you here, just think of it that way. To me it sounds very small, I would never be able to do what I do in my shop with the space available to you. But, as with anything you must do with what is available to you. So, in spite of that, go for it. You will see what you need in the future, and maybe you can do something with it then to expand into more room then. Good luck
