    I'll second the fiber with an additional comment, for not much more than the cost of a new media converter, you can pick up a switch with SFP+ (10gbps) ports, something along the lines of an aruba...

    That's pretty spiffy! I've been meaning to do something similar but less exciting with wired sensors, but dont really want to deal with piles of wires. I do have a couple RTL-SDR's around so...

    I picked up a shop vac off the curb a few weeks back and fired it up and it made a horrid noise, so I did what most suggested and tore into it.

    Fusion 360 is pretty nice and being free helps. I find it generally easy to use (disclaimer I do a lot of parametric modeling at work) It generally works quite well for me but I keep running into odd...

    Seems like a reasonable thing to do. Do be aware that these magnets will scratch things up pretty good if they slide around in a lot of cases.

    They sell them with countersunk holes for screws,...

    Gas if you have the option, it has better feel, and potentially more applied power. I have had several gas as well as electric coil and radiant stove tops and prefer gas.

    Have you run it as is?

    I can think of numerous other things to upgrade before the impeller. I run this unit and a chip separator and its not bad. Plumbing and all of that will likely have a much...

    Bert makes a good point. If your compressor is something like an 8 scfm machine and it is on 50% of the time, you are using about 4 scfm. If its on 10% of the time you are using .8 scfm etc...

    You could ask a friend with a 3D printer to make a few fittings for you. I have run dozens of random DC fittings and adapters off on mine.

    I've been rather happy with my $9 compressor driven HVLP gun from Hazard Fraught Tools. I will admit I have not used it for any finer finishing but a lot of deck stain, some thinned alkyd enamels and...

    I just use a $10 powermatic paddle switch. With one wire to run, one to ground/common. Sure it's a 20 amp 240 rated switch but it's what I had. A tiny toggle switch will do the same. It essentially...
