Need A Jig To Stand Up Doors


Need to know if anyone has some type of a stand or jig to hold doors while I spray paint them.

Seems that some years ago while painting new construction, a painter used some type of a stand that held the doors in place while being sprayed. I always used to lean them against the wall, paint the edges and the one side. Then turn them and finish the job. Then the wall needed to be sanded. a pain.

is there anything out there at all .
thanks

Stand a door up an screw a stick into the top edge, stand another door next to it and make a V , the stick or metal piece goes across the small part of the V.
Nail or screw the doors together.

Look at my "V" and picture yourself looking down on the doors.

They will stay in place.

Your favorite paint store probably has either or both the metal "top attached" kind and the plastic "side attached" kind of "jigs"

They are basically small (no bigger than your hand) pieces that allow you to attach two or more doors together in a "zig-zag" or sorts, standing up, so you can reach both sides

I use door deckers. They stack the doors flat. IT has a handle on the end so you can flip the doors and stack them up. Takes up very little space. No worry with runs having them flat. I think if you do a search for door deckers you should find them.

Picked up the door holders/brackets and some hinge covers today at SW.
Thanks guys. This is going to make all the difference in the world...


One last thing. The house has wood floors. What do you lay down under the doors. Plastic doesn't dry and will fly up when sprayed. just a tarp or take them outside ?

Re: Need A Jig To Stand Up Doors


tarp or other, outiside will likely have dust and other things that will stick to the finish.

you can use that cool stuff from SW or you can go homemade, scrap wood screwd into top of door, make a V,

Re: Need A Jig To Stand Up Doors


I like to spray them hanging. I use hingemags to cover the hinges.

Re: Need A Jig To Stand Up Doors


I'm in the process of making a number of paint stands for local painting contractor. This stand allows you to paint the door laying flat and turn it over with one person without touching the door and paint the other side before the first side is dry. I can send you pics if your interested.

Re: Need A Jig To Stand Up Doors


You can use saw horse and lay a 2x4 between them. Do the same one more time separating the two 82" apart. Put two screws in the top and bottom of each door and lay the screws on top of the 2 x 4s. You will need two people to flip each door but you can lay them flat this way. It minimizes runs on 6 panel doors.
