Clean-Air Paint Sprayer



      This is paint-spray system which combines the conventional shop paint spray gun and air hose with a 2-1/4 inch diameter vacuum hose of the standard shop vac, to collect stray fumes that normally float off and create a health hazard.  Use the HinesLab Vac-Spray to catch the over spray at the source.




      The Vac-Spray is an indispensable tool for auto body shops and furniture makers.

      For consumers and home use, there is a Vac-Spray with a 1-1/4” diameter hose of the home vacuum cleaner, for the standard spray-paint can.  As you spray, the fumes are pulled into the vacuum cleaner.




      In both models of the Vac-Spray, the opening of the vacuum tube is positioned to not interfere with the painting operation.
