  • Pressure rating

    Scrollers, I've got a question for any of you engineering/HVAC types. I was looking for a less expensive alternative for dust collector hose and came across a "semi-rigid flexible aluminum duct" that is about half the price of the regular DC hose (not to mention lighter and easier to move from machine to machine). Looking at the performance data, max velocity would be no problem (5000 FPM) and operating temp is not relevant for this application. For maximum rated pressures it lists 6" w.g. Pos/Neg. I'm assuming this means the rating is good for positive or negative pressure, but what kind of unit is w.g.? Anyone have an idea how I could verify that this would be okay to use in a DC application? Thanx.

    . . . because each piece will be someone's heirloom someday.

    Not being a engineeror even as smart as but just a woman that loves tools -- and a exhouse wife for 38 years I am guessing and mind I did say guess -- it is your width girth -meaning 6 inches agross.
    Heck as far as if it would work -even a flexible pvc dryer hose would work - as long as your dimensions across are right- it won't have any heat but you do need to have th same girth as the blower outlet..

      It basically means "water gauge". It refers to the amount of air pressure it takes to raise a column of water 6 inches in a tube that is calibrated for that measurement.
      If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

        I admit it... I splurged on a new "toy"

        So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
        I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
        In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.
        I also added the...

        Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined itโ€™s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

        Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
