TOPIC: I guess no Airbrushing for a few days.

I guess no Airbrushing for a few days. 30 Jan 2019 09:20 #1

I was getting to the point where I could prime the Mutant, but with a -3 and -0 for the next two nights, I don't think I'll be opening any windows to feed the spraybooth.

More like I'll opening taps to keep pipes from freezing. :S

Stay safe all of you guys to the North and West (you guys down South and East too, just for different reasons).

Wow, what a difference a little south. Maybe 6 inches last week and it's gone and two today.

They shut down several production facilities up in the Chicago area, very rare occurrence, they are use to the winter weather, parking lots have 5 foot markers for curbs and stuff (common for you yankees but I'd never seen such).
Stay warm folks!
I told you photobucket sucks...

It's in the low 20's upper teens here in Memphis and that is cold for down here. Usually it only gets down to freezing at most. Take care all you Yankee's and hobby on.

Jeff, my spray booth just has an exhaust fan and I have an insulated block that fits air tight into my window. Hot, cold rain or ice it works just fine. Sucks the fumes out. It needs a little more air flow, but works well enough as long as I don't over do it. I have a high draw fan and a low draw fan. If I'm not painting, the low draw pulls a little out at a time. With paint fumes going both fans go.

Heat wave here in central Iowa. The temp is up to -11. Modeling weather!
Weather guessers predict Friday's high will be 49 degrees warmer. Ain't that sumpthin'?

BTW, what's a spray booth? Fan? :rotf

Mine is ducted straight out of the wall, but it has to be fed with incoming air from somewhere. If I don't crack a window somewhere in the house to feed it, it'll draw from the chimney. I found that out the hard way. :blush:

Bummer about no painting but I have to say I glad someone else is getting the cold. Making it warmer up here :) -30some C a couple of nights ago and a balmy -12C now. I assume you guys are going to send it back to us soon as the temps are supposed to drop to -35C in a couple of days :(

-35C = -31F btw.
