Default Window mounted fan for spraying lacquer

This window mounted fan support is a long overdue shop upgrade project. Every time I spray lacquer I had to rig the fan to stay in the window (it fell once and bent the blades). And it didn't work very well, either. As much air came in the window as the fan blew out. Also, every bug that got near the window got sucked in by the vortex on the periphery of the fan. This is much, much better!


Enjoy!
David

Pretty nifty neat, David. Liked the technique for cutting the bolt heads in too.

David, that looks like it's going to work pretty good. So what about the AC this summer? You just going to sweat it out. Pun intended.

The heat and humidity are terrible here and I know it's a whole lot worse where you live.

Thanks, guys! I only run that when I spray, Don, and then turn the mini-split back on and I try to do most of my spraying in the mornings before it gets warm. Today it was in the 50's so pretty nice with the windows open for 30 minutes or so while I sprayed.

An exceptional video David. Your shop must be a lot cleaner and dust free than mine, because when spraying lacquer, which is often, I have to wait 'till all dust has settled then I get a perfect finish, if I had a fan sucking the air out it would spread the fine dust.

I would worry about the explosive fumes and a spark generated by the fan motor..

Another great video, David. I love the bolt head technique.

I realize it isn't explosion proof but when I spray it isn't very heavy and with the HVLP gun there's so little overspray and airborne material that it's gone in no time. I've been using this for about 18 months and just finally mounted it properly. Now if I was using a cup gun and filling the room with vapors that would be a different story but I spray small items and it's over with pretty quickly. There's another window and it's open to bring in fresh air.

David..
what about the guy that sees your better plan and does likewise...
only he has a cup gun, no HVLP and is spraying larger projects...
are there others in the shop and is his family on the other side of the shop's wall... his insurances paid up or any good..
''what if'' is a mighty powerful force to be reckoned w/..
