      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

Extractor fan for booth

hi

 

I'm thinking of getting a spray booth and ideally would like to be able to vent it out of the garage workshop wall.  The distance from where I'd be using it means I might need extra ducting and an extractor fan in the wall.  Anyone got any experience and recommendation re this kind of setup.  Recommended extractor fan units etc.

 

cheers

Hi,

 

Not sure about the cheap ones that won't take flammable materials.

The Graphicair A300S-D that we sell is supplied as standard with a 2m long, 100mm diameter (tumble dryer size) hose & they are normally happy to supply up to 4m in length.  The standard 100mm fitting males fitting it simple. There are a number of different adapters and vents available from DIY stores.

I use a cooker hood upside down on my desk with a chipboard surround, vented out of the workshop via a hole I knocked in it.  I've described it in more detail elsewhere, so I won't drone on about the nitty-gritty :)

 

Metal flexible ducting or rigid plastic ducting is the best way, and the cheapo thin plastic stuff with a wire "spring" is very flimsy.

Hi there, I'm also looking for a new spray booth, and I've been looking at the Graphicair A300S can you tell me the dimensions of the unit without the hood fitted. I'm short for space at my work area, so I'm looking to find out the depth of it, and how far it will sit out from the wall without the hood fitted.

cheers

Hi,

 

Sizes, the filter is 37 by 49cm.  Unit  main box is 56.6 x 39 x 43cm.

 

The standard hose that is fitted is a collapsible 2m long by 100mm diameter and takes standard tumble drier fittings, you can pay for extra length, up to 4m. 

The 2m hose squashes down quite well, it is a steel wire with a material outer, so will last many years.

 

As you don't know how long the first filter is going to last we offer a bundle with a spare filter for £290 ans also have spare filters at shows to save people postage costs.

I've had mine for more than 15 years and it's still going strong.

 

Hope that helps,

Paul
