    Just looking to get a couple of pictures of peoples different setups - want to see the whole area and how they use it to work? how big is the space, where is it etc, how cramped is it, maybe you've got your whole house as a setup?
    look forward to seeing them!

    This is my space, here I do everything except guitar playing, I do that in the living room (I only sing in the shower), this my hobby room where I build my aeroplanes among other things, when I'm airbrushing I tape my work to the wall between the 2 tables, I have lots of thick plastic sheeting which I tape to the wall first.

    The glass table in the corner by the window I made specially for cutting foam for my aeroplanes, but I cut everything there, this is actually also a tip, when cutting stencils, if you do this on glass the knife stays sharper longer and you don,t get tracks which your knife will follow the next time you cut.

    The table can be folded away when not in use and the room is 4.5 metres x 2.4 metres, I have an air extractor which I can attach to the window if needed.

    I use my garage as my space, it can be cold, but it will be a very good spot this spring and summer.

    100_2342.jpg Well all finished just got to add an extractor fan and we are off .The space is 1.8mx2.4mx3.6mx2.45m and 1.9m high .Yep its an odd shape so i built the insulated workshop to fit it ,why waste space. Its insulated at 3" thick including the floor and i have tested it by heating it up with my infa red drying lamp .Its real toasty in a very short time and holds the heat longer than i thought .Lighting is by 3x 36 watt 3ft fluorescent tubes which i think is more than enough for the area .I have various sockets around for ease of use .Air is being supplied by 2 of the quiet type units with tanks 1 for my aztek AB and the other for my air fed mask for when spraying solvent containing paints and clear coats .The insulation has worked very well for the external noise as well as you cant even here the compressors running .Cost wise i built the unit from old pallets that were damaged so the only real costs to me were time /insulation/ electrical items and painting the inside white and roof boards and felt .Oh i nearly forgot it has also been lined with plastic sheeting to further protect from the elements .I have given it a dummy run spraying some motorcycle parts as they can fit in there nicely all worked ok .Hopefully the pics will now upload .

    Mitch, the room is also used to build aero planes, I actually only have the one wall on the left of the room to work on, the wall on the other side is completely covered in shelving, but I do everything in this room, I practically live there. lol.

    Master yes i have some good gear ,but now i just need loads of practice .The 2 compressors i got for nothing as they were damaged in transit and it cost £20. to fix them so a real bargain . The octopus stand is without a doubt the most useful stand i have ever purchased and the most used and it only cost £50 pounds new shop soiled .Just got to sort out the extractors and we are in business .Hope to show my practices very soon .

    Thankfully I found a woman that will let me do this in the living room. Compressor and all. I have to go to the shop if I want to spray with uro's though. (I have worn the respirator in the living room for smaller projects, lol.)

    That reminds me of a time many moons ago and my 1st wife came home and found my chopper (motorcycle) in parts in the kitchen but to make matters worse when she opened the oven she went mad as she found me heating up some cases to aid bearing removal .Oh and when she went to the freezer she was greeted by the bags containing all the new bearings and bushes . I did try to explain why but i think that was the beginning of the end of the marriage .
