Would have been hard to shoot the first 2 on the flat.

On a price job 2 coats each side, use nail boards. Spray the back and then put the nail board on the door and flip it, spray the front. Put in rack to dry, repeat again.
Leo, what do you mean by nail board? Sorry for the rookie question.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


Nail boards have 3 or 4 nails or screws poking through a board (I have used 1/2" ply scraps). You start with the good side down on the points (very gently of course) and spray the back side first, no edges. Then flip the door over carefully laying the freshly sprayed door face on the points and quickly finish the sides and good face.

By the time it all dries, it is pretty difficult to see the pin holes. You can touch those up pretty easy though.

I used to do the nail board, but don't anymore. I spray one side at a time.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


That's what I thought. I guess I was confused when he said he put the nail board on the door and then flipped the door. I would of thought that you flipped the door and set it on the nail board. Thinking about it now though I can see how it would be easier to hold the door(with out touching the wet finish) and with less risk of dropping it on the nails. That Leo is pretty sharp

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


I was PM'd a question, can't link photos there.

The benches are MFT-3's.

The paper roller is 2" PVC, I use a closet flange as the wheel, had to reduce to fit the 2" PVC.

Axle for new paper roll is 1/2" EMT.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


Thanks Tom. Nice setup. How do you ventilate the filtered intake behind the table?

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


Rigid air mover.

This is the only picture I currently have of it.

I'm shooting one door so I didn't have the bench setup and the air mover connected to it.

Travis, do you have a picture of the air mover connected to the bench?

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


Is that 4" or 6" tubing? How did you connect to the intake of the air mover?

6

In the first picture you can see a small piece of foam with a takeoff in it. That piece fits to the side of the air mover. I tape off the intake on the other side so all the air will pull through the duct work.

If I remember I'll get a pic next week of the connection. Travis and I use the same process for connection.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


Thanks Tom. I love the setup. Going to build myself something similar, maybe not as large, when I get some spare time. Cant always find the extra time for improvements like this, business has been good this winter so far. If you get the chance I would like to see the hookup to the air mover. Also been looking at cylinder type portable air movers, might be an easier connection for intake and they come with an exhaust tube.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors








The suction holds the adapter on when you turn the air mover on. Overall this is an inexpensive setup that performs better than having no air filtration and exhaust.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


Thanks for all the pics. Definitely worth the effort for me to build a setup like yours. Do you use airless or HVLP? It looks like it should grab most of the overspray from either type.

I use an HVLP in the shop with this setup. I'm not sure that I would say it gets most of the overspray, but it certainly cuts down on it. There isn't enough CFM when you're spraying larger pieces such as cabinets.

If you're spraying doors and drawer fronts, pieces, etc on the bench, it does pretty well. If we get a job I just submitted a bid on, I'll be getting a more appropriately sized fan for the job because I'll be spraying a lot of pieces.

Re: Set-Up For Spraying Cabinet Doors


What type of fan are you thinking about upgrading to get more CFM?
