  • Finishing in cold weather.

    I have an unheated finishing shed that I try to heat with a small electric heater. After spraying a light coat I would allow to dry four hours or overnight. I recently purchased a used heat lamp, that was used for automotive painting, and have reduced my curing time to fifteen minutes per coat. I am using a rattle can of finish. I applied five coats on four items today before lunch.

    Jim thanks for the tip. Do you also have a fan to circulate the air?

      No fan. I set the four items directly under the heat lamp.

        Rolf,
        Most blowers blow the dust from the left side to keep the cutting line clear. Did you disconnect your blower so that the vacuum system sucks the dust from the left keeping the pattern lines clear?

        I found some small tags at Hobby Lobby. They were in the Jewelry materials section.

        They were about 3/8" x 5/8".

        $4.99 for a packet...

        I added a trap to catch the small pieces that I don't want to lose. Also a simple swivel so I can swing the top part out of the way without messing with the upper nozzle. I did not glue the joints in case I get a clog. ...
