There are some good tips in Finewoodworking .com and Wood.com
Make sure you use a explosion proof fan not any type of house hold fan.

I talked with a furnace man who is a friend of mine and he gave me a blower motor out of a furnace for free. Turns out most furnace companys just throw them away. You can buy a new one for around $60-$80 bucks so don’t let anyone take advantage of you. Tell them have if you give me an old motor I will send you referals every time I hear of someone needing any furnace work. That should work. One more thing he told me what he does to clean them up. Just three bolts on one side and a set screw on the other side that locks the shaft. Take the blower apart then take it to the power car wash and have at it. Mine turned out like new and it was full of grease and dirt. I am working on mine as soon as all the company leaves from the holidays. I will post a pic when I get it done. Good Luck.

PS. I am spraying only water based products, no solvents. If you spray solvents you will need explosion proof fans and wiring and permits.
