So far it seems to work well and I'd think is enough air. I have 12' of ebay CPAP (for people with sleep apnea) hose connected to the shop 1.25" hose with duct tape and the other end in my fresh air hood (an actual fresh air hood I found on ebay from a surplus place cheap).

My only worry is that I could forget to turn the air supply on. I suppose I'd smell paint soon enough as a reminder.

Of course this is jerry rigged and definitely not tested or commercially designed as such, but I'd bet it's healthier than paint fumes. I can't smell even a hint of paint with this on.
