    $350 for a damn fire proof fan!

    Anybody know where to get a fire proof fan for a good price.
    I don't think a fire proof fan should cost more than my paint gun.:evilmad:

    there really isnt a fire proof fan...and its for painting so you can suck exhaust fumes and u dont want the flammable fumes running through the motor of a fan.......from what i know you can get a large box fan say like an atic fan out of an old house and get a motor wiht belt and mount the belt away from the opening...that is the best suggestion i can give you and its the one that CAR CRAFT used lol

    If you just want to cut the risk of an explosion down considerably, dont use a fan to suck the fumes out of the booth, use it to blow them out. It's a called cross-flow ventilation. You have the fan at one side and an exit at the other, with the rest of the both sealed. That way no volitile fumes pass through the fan at all. Make sure you install a filter on the incomming air so you dont have dust problems. I filter on the exit hole is a good also (if you care about the o-zone).
    This way you can use a $30 K-mart window fan and not worry about 3rd degree burns.:bigthumb:

    man i always use belts. I have my big fan with a pully, and there is a belt that runs to the a no gas.no electric motor. When the motor runs... fan runs. Only thing is I also have to replace the motor. Those damn hamsters just can't take the fuems like they used to. They get the munchies and pass out, I go through about 6 each coat.:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: but i tell you what using the Hamster wheel wont get you toasty, just the Hamster
