Thanks for the replies.

Clammy – interesting that you don’t get as much temperature change as I would have thought. Do you have an idea of cfm your exhaust fan is moving? And what’s the volume of your shop space?

Brian – I already use a 3M half-mask respirator with organic vapor cartridges, so that’s covered. I’m thinking more of keeping the concentration of fumes down enough to prevent ignition.

I may try to get some more information yet on this, but it’s looking like it wouldn’t be too practical. Another aspect for me is the heat source. Right now I’m just using propane space heaters, but I have a hot water boiler I saved from our house remodel. If I use that, and install the boiler in the lean-to shed behind the garage, it would separate the burners from the air in the garage to eliminate the risk of fire/explosion. But, not sure when I’ll be able to get to that!
