My Washout Booth by Classic.

Hello guys!, I would like to share w/ y'all our modified washout booth for our silk screen business.

I was at the seller buying a dummy for my online catalog and then I saw what it could be a perfect washing out booth (see images attached).

As some you may know, I live in Costa Rica and down here it could very difficult to find a good booth and even if you are thinking on importing it... Taxes and shipping will eat you alive, the ones I saw on ebay were over $600... And this thing cost us $70 plus parts such the light bulbs and so forth, so run the numbers--we save at least +$400.

So for that reason, we decided to "homemade" this puppy to do the washout booth.

Here is the video of the final out come:

Thanks for watching,

Hey that thing is pretty cool! A washout booth is a good non critical piece of equipment that is great to build. If you can plumb and seal things up like you did here then why not? A lot of people in the States use old shower stalls with tub basins. They raise them up and cut a backlight in and there you go...

Thanks for sharing.
