  • Air filter

    Hi all,

    I have a quick question, i am wondering when staining what you guys use to get rid of the smell. My wife gets angry at me when im staining something in the garage, cause she can smell it in the house. If you have any suggestions i would appreciate it. I cant open the garage doors while working down there cause the temperature is too cold, my little space heater doesnt work all that well. Is there some kind of air filtration system you use to help rid the smell?

    Thanks!

    T-ram, I have a vacuum cleaner in the basement with the exhaust hose going out of a window. I can get rid of most of the fumes that way. Should work in the garage as well.............Tom
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

      You need some kind of fan system to pull the fumes out. It can be a box fan in a widow. I have a bathroom fan in the wall of my small shop. I do my finishing next to it .and let the fan run for a hour or so when I am done.

        As with the other replies, my workshop is in the basement, and I installed a kitchen exhaust fan in the wall. I turn this on while finishing, and leave it on for a couple of hours afterward.

            Switch to water-based stains?

                Now Mike, there\'s a sure fire way to incur an injury! I\'d want to be sure I really thought that through before undertaking such an endeavor!! :-)

                  I have switched to leather dyes, less odor. I use the alcohol based leather dyes by Fiebings. A trick I learned from the pipemakers.

                  As to the finishes, no real help here, the best I have found are Daly\'s SeaFin Teak Oil. Not great, but better smelling than most.
