My old booth was built out 2 x 4 and melemine sheeting sold a lowrs and home depot. Worked great but the fire marshal inspected it and didnt like it. Now i have a sheet metal booth.

What is there to laugh about :?: :?: I think it is innovative - creative - functional - frugal --- use what you have to build what you need. Personally I think it looks good.

You might want to skin it in at some point, but I see no real need.

You got me thinkin :idea: :arrow: :lol:

Here is a really bad picture of the PC spray booth I built this weekend. All in all it cost me about $15 but I did have the electrical stuff on hand already. Nothing fancy no blower (Might add that in later) just something to keep the powder for going all over.

I also added a regulator for the PC gun so that I don't have to keep turning down my main air supply.
I added rods across the top to hang items from (They were from an old metal shelf .....thought I would never use them and would hang onto them forever but they worked perfectly here).

Well I picked up another little piece of the puzzle last night. I managed to find a 30 ft 50 Amp 125\250V extension cord for $40 on Craigslist. It was a great deal as the 6 gauge cable alone would have cost me way more than that. This will allow me to move my oven wherever I want in my shop.

The picture doesn't do this thing justice.....It is a monster!....the cable is about 1 1/2 " in diameter....a heck of an extension cord for sure!

Well finally an update.....I am going to purchase the steel to continue on the oven. I have decided to use 3/16ths plate for the floor and use 3 x 3 x 3/16ths angle going up each corner. This will allow me to hang a LOT of weight in the oven without worry. Hopefully I can post some pictures in the next week or so with the completed floor and corners. Then start on installing the sheet metal skin and insulation.

Started installing the 26 gauge sheet metal skin...was pretty reasonable at $25 for a 4 X 10 sheet......and I put it on its base. Next I will locate the corners and weld in the 3" angle that will be going up each corner. So far it is going as I had expected.
