  • Axis Hobby Air Respirator

    Does anyone here have experience using the Hobby Air respirator? I am considering getting one. Half mask would be good for sanding, full face mask for 2k painting would be a minimum. I don’t know if the supplied aIr hood would be too cumbersome or not. All of my painting is basically outdoors under a canopy. What are you using?

    I have been considering upgrading my old respirator so am interested in the responses to this thread.

    One thing to consider is that the Urethanes (2K) do absorb into the skin.

    Do they offer a pressurized body suit with the full hood. Any links to the products you are looking at?

      All the info you need is at They have suits and hoods. Actually a respirator must be fit tested by a doctor for industrial use in the workplace per OSHA. No beards allowed, yet the TV car painters all have facial hair. An N95 or charcoal filter is not adequate PPE. A full face mask or hood Is needed to protect the eyes also. A Tyvek suit is cheap insurance.

        ALL of the carburetors released by Ford for use on a Model A or B
        had the float bowls EXTERNALLY vented.
        So the use of an air cleaner of any type will negatively affect the air to fuel ratios.
        These carbs were not designed for air cleaner use.
        To allow the use of an air cleaner the bowl vent must be relocated to the INSIDE
        of the carburetor near the choke plate area.

        Finally Installed It! Vintage Centrifugal Air Cleaner
        by Ayyy
        After many priority shifts and procrastinations, I finally got around to installing the vintage centrifugal air cleaner on my 1930 Model A CCPU.

        What's a vintage centrifugal air cleaner?? This air cleaner was patented in 1922 and it works by centrifugally throwing the particles out of the air stream heading towards the carburetor. It does not use a mesh filter, so there is no restriction...

        Air Balancing a Zenith Carburetor for us with an Aftermarket Air Filter ??
        by conaway2
        I’ve read a number of opinions on this, and, after just installing a highboy K&N air filter, am wondering if I need to worry about this. From what I’ve read, all that is required to air-balance a Zenith carb is to drill one hole...this sounds pretty simple - does anyone know if this is correct, and, if so, where the hold should be drilled ??

        thanks - Jim

        Hood Identification
        by Bobm90
        This is a picture of the hood on my 30 Town sedan, please note the holes in it surrounding the louvers, these appear to be factory made and are on both sides, the hood fits fairly well, I haven't seen these on any A hoods or replacements maybe you more experienced guys have , any info would be welcomed, thanks.

        Hood Hinges
        by carolinamudwalker
        On the center line of the hood there are 4 riveted hinges. 2 at the front and 2 at the rear. Are these available anywhere? I have two at the front that someone tried to weld but they cracked again.

        Hood rods
        by Hazelhoff
        Well, got help and installed the Hood. Now I notice the smaller rods which hold the side panels are the hood length .. Wouldn't it be better to cut them so the tips don't sit on the lace, forcing the hood away from where it is supposed to rest ?
