Homemade Spray Booth Electrics

Recommended Posts

I'm having a lot of ideas at the moment.

 

The latest is to build a DIY spray booth, (for when I've sorted out an airbrush), but what concerns me are the electrics.

Assuming that I've got the right parts - bathroom extractor fan, 3-core, on/off switch and 3-pin plug, does anyone have an idea on how to wire these things up?

I only ask, because I'm a simple mechanical engineer and can attach bits together, but have always seen electrics as a bit of a black art..

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

First make sure the fan is brushless so you minimize the risks. The brush type fans put out sparks constantly when powered on, with a big enough build-up of flammable gases an explosion/fire can happen. If you need help with the wiring just post some pics, I'm sure we can figure something out.

A good brushless fan would be one for custom PC cases. You can get fairly quiet 200/230mm ones that move quite a decent amount of air. They are also 12v, so you could power the fan and some LED strip lights from an external 12v power brick.
