I cant begin to tell you fellow weekend warrior woodworkers here how much I hate to hand apply finishes.
Im willing to purchase a better compressor, experiment with a spray gun or two, but Im hesitant because of the strict code enforcement in my town.
Im quite sure the NN would be in city hall complaining about this or that the second he got wind(pun) of any chemicals I was spraying.
Is there any way to disguise what Im doing, while keeping adequate ventilation in my garage?
Im reluctant also because Ive had a run in with local code enforcement agents over the noise, and have taken care of that issue, but I know if they caught me spraying chemicals they would bring down a laundry list of violations, and that could be extremely costly to me. And once that can of worms opens up, I know I will be hassled and eyeballed until I die or move out of here.
Are water based polys/lacquer less likely to get me in hot water?
anyone have any suggestions besides moving or renting a spray booth?
