    Does anyone use watercolors to paint your carvings? I have always used acrylics but recently decided to try watercolors. I bought a cheap set from Walmart to see if I liked them or not. I use a lot of water and the color penetrates the wood. It looks more like a tent that paint. I like the watercolors and believe I will buy a more expensive set.

        I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

        Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.
