I finally upgraded my spraybooth to a more powerful version - it is now 5 decibles louder but really moves a good amount of air! As well, I upgraded my airbrush to an IWATA Revolution (trigger version) with side cup and handle AND, quick release air hose system. Before, I had an old aquarium hose system that worked but was not really what I wanted! So, now I have two airbrushes all linked up, one for paint, the other for clear coating. As well, I upgraded the extraction ducting to a larger diameter to accommodate the larger volume of air and the whole system functions just great! The best idea ever was to install a 50cm LED lighting strip that mimics soft day-light lighting conditions just ahead of the spraybooth intake... it incorporates a touch button on/off switch with three levels of brightness!! Now, I can finally see something!! The only drawback was that my spray table station had to be moved out another 4 inches from the wall to accommodate the extraction ducting, so my spray table station now is no longer flush with the neighbouring construction table. I found that after completing the upgrade project that there are no longer any remaining vapours in the room and my eyes were no longer tired or feeling strained. Good air extraction and well placed appropriate lighting are very important to our well being!
Have a good hard long look at your lighting and extraction systems, and don’t forget a good, comfortable and ergonomic chair is also important!
Happy modeling everybody! I’m looking forward to going down to my hobby workbench for some quality time today!
