  • Wip grader

    I have built serveral graders over the years, so when I decided to make another one, it had to have more detail. This one will have steerable front wheels and when looked at from the front, the top of the tires will move left and right, as does the full scale grader.
    It will also be the first to have an engine and related detail.
    The first 2 pictures show most of the front axle parts and the axel assembled, while the 3rd picture shows how the grader looks to date.
    I will post more as things progress.

              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.

              The VacuFlo actually uses...

              I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
              Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....

              For something like a table saw the volume of air moved is much more important than whether a good vacuum is produced....
