Default Are you using an air extraction system?

I wish I had done this year's ago, it would probably have extended my life significantly.

Pulls out so much dust and fumes I can almost ditch the respirator... almost. But it does keep the rest of the house dust and fume free. Epic.

If you wanna know how and what parts, lemme know. This system is POWERFUL.

Someone on here turned me on to aiming a box fan out the window, and taping a 20X20 air filter on the front.

I use the air movers, duct and zip walls. Works great!

I'm also curious about that clear duct stuff...the stuff I have is heavy accordion-style.

Iíve done it like that a few times when putting a fan directly in the window wasnít practical. I just made an exhaust tube out of a plastic drop cloth and taped it to a regular circular fan.

The pics in the OP look like a plastic wrap that might come on a roll of carpet or something like that. I donít see a taped seam like there would be if it was homemade.

This is the kind that I have: http://www.jondon.com/dry-air-force-9-air-mover-with-stacking-ring.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIt87O3arK2gIVjK_ICh0yrQ H6EAYYCSABEgLjLfD_BwE


I also have a Harbor Freight version, which works OK but is noisier and may potentially catch on fire eventually. https://www.harborfreight.com/8-inch...tor-97762.html

What would a painter need a force-9 for exactly? That thing is a beast.

The duct is layflat.
Allegro Industries 9500-500 Lay Flat Ducting 500', fits 8" and 12" Blowers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TD6HZFU..._b9R2AbSX7K03S

It goes on the output side, but the intake uses at accordion style so it does collapse when I need to suck dust from a certain area.

I used 8" flanges I got off Amazon to attach to cardboard in the window and on top of the fan for the intake.

I've used a box fan in the window a lot, but its not very powerful. This pulls air from the whole house.

Do you use a furnace filter on the exhaust end at the window? in what circumstance would you use that setup? Is that to exhaust paint dust when you are spraying? I use a dustless sanding system so my job sites are immaculate.

Because painting is only one portion of my operation. We remodel more than anything. Zip walls and the fan will keep the rest of the house reasonably dust free.

We used to work in insurance restoration here and there maybe 5 or 6 years ago. I always admired the equipment...this stuff is designed to run non-stop for years.

I'd bet that jondon fan will last until I retire, and I'm 37.

In sandblasting, I used to have a helmet that supplied breathable o2 from the air compressor... however given that we no longer do professional sandblasting, aside from small personal projects, and lawn furniture, I sold it for a pretty penny... though I kept the Empire pot and the ingersol rand 185 air compressor... 192 hours... and its 30 years old? its not even broken in yet! and its paid for!

plus its a really nice feeling when you push the brass pin and the air compressor starts... fill a car tire from 10psi to 80 psi in 10 seconds LOL...

outside of that... for air exchanging... we have these little fans my dad made out of commercial squirrel fans, Harbor frieght now sells POS knock offs... they move enuff air, out of a 4 sq inch opening you can literally rest your hand on the outlet when theyre on...
