    How would you install a squirrel cage fan? Depending on the type of paint booth? Downdraft or crossdraft? And how would you wire it up? With maybe a switch.

    Thanks for the heads up. Mind I ask, how do you have yours set up? The computer fan is probably what i'll go with, because I already have a bunch of them I can get. Whats your booth look like? I'm trying to get some ideas together. Any help would be appreciated.

    That's a good idea. Since it is an enclosed motor, meaning there aren't any exposed wiring, you would think it would be explosion proof. But it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks for the tip!

    Hey guys, Caleb here from ACM. I'm in the process of designing my plans for my paint booth. I'm now looking for a good quality exhaust fan, without breaking the bank. It seems that just about every place I've looked at, there prices for the one I need are ridiculous! So, I resorted to looking on Ebay (go figure), I've actually had good luck in the past with Ebay, so I thought, "why not?". Sure enough, I searched and 8" exhaust fan and one of the first things I found was this:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-6-8-10-Inch-Duct-Fan-Exhaust-Vent-Air-Cooled-Hydroponic-Inline-Blower-/271175363361?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item3f234fab21

    What do you guys think? Its actually for gardening I think, but at the end of the day its still exhaust fan, its also compatible with the same diameter carbon filter.

    8" exhaust fan:
    110v/60 Hz.
    47.7 watts
    current: 120 volts
    400 CFM

    I hope this can be some help to someone else who's trying to find a good fan for their paint booth. Always glad to help. This fan is only $38 dollars I think, so not too expensive, its also a simple plug in and go fan too!

    Thanks for looking, and since I'm new to the forums, please add me as your friend!

    Need some Opinions on an old airbrush!
    Hey guys, I'm Caleb, owner of American Classic Models I have an old sears brand single-action bottom-feed airbrush, and I'm thinking about using it. I have all the other essentials, compressor, regulator, braided hose, etc, and it seems to look a lot like some of the new badger models, its older so keep in mind its probably built to last. Those cheap plastic starter airbrushes from hobby lobby don't do the trick. Just need some opinions on whether or not its good to use. Of course it will need a good cleaning. The model number is 364-15506 I think.

    Thanks guys, any help would be appreciated!

    Don't forget to check out my great friend, Jameston Kroon, over at www.scalefinishes.com for high-quality paints.
