Keeping dust and %$&* cat hairs off fresh paint
« on: January 29, 2018, 10:06:35 am »
Don't have a fancy spray booth, and keeping dust off was a problem. Not any more, and the solution only cost me $3.05 after tax. Went to Sail, a large outdoor supply store here in Canada, and picked up a food cover made for camping by Coghlan's. Works great!

That's a good idea, I used to use something like that before I got my spray booth, not that I spray much in it, but it does keep the dust off.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I initially looked in various kitchen accessory stores, but they all said that theirs were seasonal items that wouldn't be in stock until spring. I could order them on-line for anywhere between $10 and $14, but Sail had them at $2.69 plus tax. Bargain, I'd say. The ones from kitchen stores were probably made by Gucci or Armani or something.  ;D

Handy!!!  Great idea.

Sometimes I stick things I just sprayed into the upper, closing portion of my desk here, sometimes I hang it from the chandelier and hope for the best.  :rolleyes: ;D

They're also great for eating outside.

Plastic-y.  You need plenty of hot sauce to make them palatable

I guess it would keep the cat hairs off, but scale reference cat always sees any new item brought into the house as an exciting new challenge, so he would just go to sleep on it and shed lavishly all over the outside, probably crushing the model...
