fresh air hood question

I got my fresh air hood today.... I was wondering how many cfm's do you set the hood to?? The meter goes up to 8 cfm's but it can be turned up higher... getting closer to attempting my first paint job.. of course it is going to be primer first...

thanks
simon

That's hilarious Guy Dude.



I'd say as much as you need to breathe, and then some, maybe a lot more so like AC. Of course, what do I know? I was thinking about them the other day, and how the air is pumped into the hood. Never seen one so using imagination. Think 40's-50's deap sea bell, or Gill Man movie. IDK, what moves the air for such a garment? Small fan, pump?

yes guy did have a funny answer.... they actually are pretty nice... the air is pumped in between the layers of the hood... it then comes in all around the top of your head... it does feels some what like ac (when i tested it of course done in the house where the air was cool) they also make a can that you fill with ice and attatch after the pump to make the air even cooler...
