August 19, 2015 Air Brush Paint Booth Update: Construction Completed! Joe advised that the paint booth was completed to my specifications and ready for inspection and pick-up. Since the last visit on 8-17-15, all of the wiring had been completed and the front face was built and installed.
The front face was designed to extend downward and upward from the top and bottom of the painting chamber by two inches. The overhang on the sides would be one inch from the left wall and one inch from the right wall. In addition the front face was extended upward over the painting chamber to cover the box housing the light fixtures and wiring. This would provide a smooth, seamless appearance to the front of the paint booth.
The above simple diagram outlines the basic wiring of the paint booth. A three-prong male outlet extends from the rear of the paint booth. This can plug into any wall outlet to power the paint booth. From here the electricity flows through a cable along the inside of the paint booth to a square steel electrical box mounted inside the painting chamber on the right wall (as viewed from the front).
This box houses three switches and one outlet. One switch is the on/off for the lights. The second switch is the on/off for the fan motor. And the third switch is the on/off for the female outlet directly under it. This outlet could be used to power an additional light source or other power tool needed for painting.
I plan to draw a more detailed electrical diagram to publish in a future update on this project. As with all electrical projects, do not perform tasks that you are not trained or otherwise qualified to do!
Now the paint booth is in my garage where I have completely disassembled it for priming and painting. All of the exposed wood surfaces will be painted white. This will be the subject of the next update!
