Tent for Tile Saw

I think I'm going to set up a tent for my tile saw in the garage when I move up to the upper level. Anybody have photos of a design that you have used? Any issues I should be aware of before I set it up?

I think he means to contain the overspray. I don’t have a pic handy. Many of us have started by putting a kiddie pool on the floor, setting up the saw stand inside that. Then erecting a framework of cheap PVC pipe to hold plastic to the framework with cheap spring clamps. All the plastic drapes down into the kiddie pool (or 5-gallon bucket) under the saw. It’s important to trim the excess length of plastic so it flows all the way down to the bucket/kiddie pool.

I’ve also used a set of expanding “3rd Hand” poles to hang what looks to be a 3-sided shower curtain from the ceiling. You overlap some plastic onto the top pad of the pole and expand the pole to the ceiling. Then hang the plastic down into the bucket or kiddie pool. This method is cheap and easy if you’ve already got the “3rd Hand” poles.

Correct. It will be in the garage. On the upper level the only good place to set up outside is in the front, and I'm afraid the saw will get stolen. On the lower level I have a sweet set up outside on the south side of the house.

But up top I'll need to keep it in the garage or even inside the house. Just looking for some options and designs to protect the walls and ceiling from the oversrpay.

Do you have any of the "3rd Hand" type of adjustable poles that you can run from floor to ceiling? Or were you looking to make a framework of some sort? I can probably pull out my PVC pipes from the garage and take pics and give you measurements if you'd like. It's not expensive, as the PVC is cheap...but it does take a bit of time putting them together.

1x2 or small pvc pipe can be cut about 1/2 inch shorter than the floor to ceiling height and then carefully bowed and setup as a plastic holding pole. When they straighten out they will hold up the plastic. Just need to be careful to not damage the ceiling. Pads, rubber ends etc can be put on them jut in case.

The spring loaded length adjustable length poles mentioned above are really nice to use though.

Here is what I did. I'll use the 2x4 later on anyhow, so this was easier than using PVC.
