Moe thanks for the tip. I will take another look at it to see if I can modified a bit, or build two trees. It is a little low because I was trying to keep the tree inside my paint tent.

This is why I try to post pictures before I do stuff, to get somebody's suggestions.

Good idea with the swivels, curious how much of a pain it will be painting stuff hanging down so close to floor level? I actually hang all my stuff from fencing wire or straightened coat hangers, about chest height from hooks in the ceiling. When one part is done I just take it to the other side of the shop and hang it off the garage door track. Personally I think you may have over spray issues from one part to the next hanging that close together but that's just my .02. If it works for you, run with it. I really only know three things . . . and one is that I only know three things . . . .

Steve, you are welcome to come down any time and use my shop. Its nothing special. My shop is just a long shed, 12x32 full of stuff. I know it's a long drive, but don't ever hesitate to ask, I would love to hang out...

Thanks Neil for your tips I appreciate it. Lights, I am covered, need sun glasses when you walk in...

I did buy a paint tent to help with overspray,not sure how it will work out. I have overspray filters but not sure where to put them. I have 6 exhaust fans hooked up in the roof but not sure if I should use them to suck up air while I am painting. And I here I could blow myself up with a spark? I really don't want overspray everywhere so I am still trying to come up with a solution to maintain heat, humidity and remove overspray.

And Neil, your right about the north:ohno:

Hey Marc nice tree.........couple thoughts for ya........lighting.......i big must.......and overspray.......i can only pass along my idear of controlling overspray with my furnace blower fan box i use....reusing old furnace filters too keep the blower clean...........it is best used exhausting to the outdoors, but sucks every ounce of heat out of the shop........cause ya need air too come in as well........works ok, i heat up the shop, crack the man door, set and ready too spray, turn on the blower, spray then shut everything down...reclose the wide open door...........reheat the shop.........sucks bein north sometimes.......:hand:

Nice paint tree. I wish I had a place I could paint over the winter. I got several motors and some parts that I would like to get repainted...

I made me a Charlie Brown Christmas tree!

Pretty ugly, but I think it will do a good job. Each branch has a swivel plate on it so I can spin each section 360 degrees while painting. Each piece has two strings ( or should I say speaker wire)attached to it so it doesn't rotate on me when spraying. I wanted to be able to spray all the parts at one time. And this is what I came up with.:doh: :hand:

just waiting on paint that I ordered from NY Marine, and I'm updating my shop Heat Supply to an electric garage heater to keep the humidity and temperature under control.

Seriously, seeing that completely torn down is giving me bad flashbacks. Keep on it, you'll have that done by May no problem.


Thanks Moe, I knew you would have some flashbacks about this.
