Ok guys and gals because I know there's a few out there, I need your help. I constructed this paint booth and I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so. Other than the duct tape I used was apparently pretty crappy and isn't sticking to the cardboard very well, but that's an easy fix. I even put a damper on it to prevent the cold air from coming back into the shop when not in use.
The problem is that I've read that if the fan that I use to suck the fumes out doesn't have a sealed motor then it could cause an explosion. My question is if I use a paper towel like shop cloth as a filter because I really don't want the crap getting into my fan motor or onto the fan itself, then would that help to prevent an explosion especially considering how confined an area I'm spraying in. I also found that the small fan that is in the picture wasn't doing the trick and I'm going to have to use the bigger one that sits on my night stand. That one I know will work.
