I had hoped to stir some more action than has happened.  I have been working on my shop, which has been a pole barn with a partial concrete floor, and an inground hoist I rescued from a tire store that was going out of business, along with the air cmpressor that powered it.  I have to tell you that an air compresor that puts out 175 PSI and has a tank that is 6 ft. x 3 ft, really cuts down on the moisture that the little moisture collector on your spray gun has to deal with. I will be installing the air conditioning system I got from a customer of mine in the shop.  If you know any HVAC dealers, they are taking in systems that are just great for hobby shops that are being replaced by “high efficiency systems” with tax credits.  I paid $200 for my used 4 ton system.  You heat your shop in the winter, why should you not air condition it in the summer?  Your car ois air conditioned, your house is air conditioned, your work place ias air conditioned.  Many of my customers, body shops, printing shops, machine shops, are air conditioned. You can come home from work, turn on the air, have dinner, and work for a couple hours in comfort.  In the winter, I stuff a couple chunks of my supply of cut up pallets, set the fire, and after dinner, it is comfortable to work out there.  Maybe i can finally finish some of my “projects”.
