    I've had the remote for my DC clipped to my shop apron for 5 years and it's never gotten lost, has always worked, and is still on its first battery. I conceived all manner of control schemes, but...

    Same here. After a few years the floor reaches a steady state of stains & paint splatters & never seems to get any worse. It is never slippery and even though it doesn't sweep quite as easily as more...

    The spiral is much stiffer for a given gauge. I could have easily used 30 gauge without danger of collapse, but nobody carries it.

    I used 26 ga spiral, 8", 6" and 4". It's very sturdy. They make it with the bumps on the seams on the inside or the outside. You want the stuff with the bumps on the outside and smooth on the inside....

    If you do drill into a post tension cable and break it, you'll know right away. Post tension slabs just aren't used anymore in these parts because repairs for corrosion, when (not if) it happens, are...

    By the time you line the return air with 1" acoustic duct liner (definitely want to do that) you will not have a lot of cross sectional area. With that many bends, I would want to have at least 2X...

    Will your sanitary sewer (there's an oxymoron) not handle the back flush? 100 gallons isn't that much.

    I built a 'sound proof' closet for my compressor and 5 HP dust collector along with some shelves for storage. It has a cyclone and a HEPA filter. No dust at all, like not even a trace. As with Paul,...

    EMT hands down looks best for surface work. But you have to take some time to learn how to do the bending. Elbows are easy. It's the offsets, kicks and saddles that are a lot harder to have look good.
