  • Dust Collection on a dime.

    Here's an alternative material for the mainline ductwork on your dust collection sytem.Use empty carpet roll tubes.Your 4" couplings and elbow fittings will fit nicely inside the tube.They come in about 10 ' lengths.If you have an "obstacle " in the way of duct routing ,the flex tube will fit over the outside diameter of the tube. Just cut the tube, and junction with a piece of flex tube routed around the obstacle. Visit your local carpet /flooring dealer, you can likely get all you need at no charge.Since they'te made of cardboard, there's hardly any static buildup, which improves the performance of your grounding wire.

        I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

        I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

        Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
