    Because of the requirement for only a few starts per hour, my collector often runs between machine tasks, when I like to remove the ear protection. That's why I built a separate room for it.

    Moving a collector around from machine to machine is such a pain & was enough to make me spend unseemly amounts of money on a bigger collector & permanent duct work. I thought a mobile unit would be...

    Sorry, didn't go through all the posts, but if the shop has an overhead door that a car could drive in, then it's a garage & ventilation systems can't be shared with the house.

    My brother, who lives in Utah (dry place) used to have a house with a big evaporative cooler. It did cool things down a bit, but just by the nature of how it works, it put a ton of water into the...

    Those Harvey machines do look like they're "a cut above". Nice to have more high quality choices.

    I don't think anyone here is arguing that hyperbaric oxygen treatments have no value. It's long been established that it works for a number of things. It just has to be done right.

    Nice solution Tom. I did a similar thing to a small closet beside the exterior basement door. But it worked a little too well because certain kids of mine (read: all of them) would neglect to clean...

    I used the floor stand because of sound isolation, but otherwise, I think the wall hanging bracket makes more sense. The floor stand also makes cleanup a bit more of a hassle.

    What size is your blower motor & how many starts per hour is it doing? The bigger the motor, the fewer starts per hour, generally speaking. It's especially important to observe this with a blower...

    Actually, the report on the study doesn't indicate any snake oil-ishness. It states that there MAY be effects on certain cells, but make no claims at all about anti-aging. It's when people who don't...

    You make some very good points there. But my deck is ipe & if I was doing over again, I'd probably go with it again. There's nothing I don't love about the surface after a dozen years in the sun (no...

    For what it costs to upgrade to 26 gauge, I wouldn't use 30 gauge. It may be fine with some blowers, but many will suck it flat. Considering the work that goes into installing the duct, it would be a...

    How are you planning on gluing up the top? If edge to edge, then 3/4" thick is terribly thin & would make a poor top for hand tool work. Laminating into a 3" - 3.5" would certainly be solid enough,...
