Reduce HVLP noise and clogged filters
Some time ago I built a small finishing booth in my basement shop, where I shoot with an HVLP turbine sprayer. But the turbine was loud in that small space, and the air filter would load up with overspray. I solved both problems by moving the turbine outside the spray booth. Here's how.I mounted a low platform just large enough to hold the turbine unit on the wall outside the spray booth, as shown. Taking a cue from a kitchen garbage disposal, I then wired a switched outlet outside the booth, controlled from inside the booth. With the turbine's power switch "on," I plugged it into the switched outlet. Finally, I bored a hole through the wall for the sprayer's air hose.—Wayne Johnson, Grand Ledge, Mich.
