Model 44040 retails for $69.99 at Harbor Freight Tools (www.harborfreight.com). This is a fire-engine red, general-purpose spray booth with a 120V, 1/2 HP impellor motor attached to the back of an aluminum cabinet. Interior dimensions are 19 3/4" wide, 12" high, and 12" deep.
The motor has a very short power cord, requiring it to be directly connected to a power source. The motor comes equipped with an adaptor for an evacuator tube to vent the exhausts - however, no evacuator tube is provided. This unit is not preassembled, you'll only need a Phillips-head screwdriver or ratchet-driver for assembly. A Watching Window is mounted on top of the Booth to allow for viewing the contents you're spraying inside. Plastic Mesh (2) is provided for mounting inside the rear wall in front of the impellor as filters. There is no power switch for this unit, unplug from the outlet when done. Spray Booth motor is quiet during operation.
Manufacturer has full-service website and telephone numbers for technical support.
Recommendations for additional equipment:
1. Self-sticking felt pads to make "feet" on the underside of the Booth.
2. Wood or metal scrap platform for positioning item(s) being painted inside the Booth.
3. Interior of Booth is not lighted, positioning the Booth near a window or strong light source is recommended.
