Effects of Water and Paint

16 November 2013 - 02:56 PM

I was thinking about this for a minute and wondered if anyone had any info on it. I live in a rural area with a well. It's filtered in a couple different spots so it comes out clean to the eye. But I was wondering if there were any known effects from "contaminated" water sources. I haven't had a problem with mine, but I'm a bit curious. Are people using water-softener or treated water unknowingly ruining paint jobs? 


The Penultimate Painting Area Thread

03 October 2013 - 03:18 PM

There are some workbench threads so why not a paint booth and painting area thread.. I built mine 2 weeks ago since winter is coming around and the garage is pretty dusty and also because I hadn't done any woodworking in some time. It's lightweight and I can take the shelves off to make it easy to move around if I need more space in the basement for something. The upper part fits up into the floor joists and keeps itself upright with the weight of the shelves and everything else. It's pretty stable for the most part considering there are only 2 legs. I wish I was a better engineer of wood projects but I think it turned out alright. Whatd'ya think?

What Irked You Today?

16 September 2013 - 02:34 PM

On a forum that I used to frequent some time ago there was a thread for posting the things that happened to irk you that day. Sometimes we can all get a little annoyed with the little things. For instance I was irritated with one of the dogs at home this morning because he doesn't like to go outside in the morning if it's cooler than 65 degrees. Spoiled by creature comforts I would say.. And sometimes it's the bigger things like losing a wallet and someone stealing your identity. On some level these things can be irrationally bothersome. So why not have a place to vent a little. It feels good to get things off your chest, doesn't it? Please understand that this is not a place to post personal attacks or evaluations of other members. On a lighter note, I will also create a thread for things that have lifted your spirits. Fire at will!
