Nice big shop (mine is actually smaller!). How do you like the Grizzly tools? I have a Griz Table Saw, jointer (same as yours), drill press and band saw - love 'em all.

Nice shop, nice duct work too. I've found the PVC to be very efficient for suction. The flexible hoses even at the highest quality don't match up. Plus it's cheap and easy to get. Where do you do your finishing?


Posted By: Mike54     [03/29/2006]
right nw I have clean the shop and do the finishing on the bench. I'm hoping to build a 15'x18'addition out the front in the fall. Thats where I plan a finishing room and I'll be able to store my wood in the shop instead of the metal shed.

Looks great! I was advised not to use PVC because of static. Easy to change to metal heating pipe and a lot safer.


Posted By: Brian Sheldon     [03/30/2006]
PVC is fine, static usually isn't a huge problem. If it is, you can get kits at woodcraft for about $10 and ground everything with copper wire. That's what I did, and I have barely any static if at all. Mike, have and photos of a finished piece?


Posted By: mike54     [03/30/2006]
I posted some pictures. I thought it would list it all together but it made a seperate listing.

How do you like your Exacktor? Which Model do you have, it looks like the ex26 which is what I have been thinking of? Do you wish you had the wider EX 40. Thanks for any advice.


Posted By: mike54     [05/16/2006]
Jack I've been been real happy with the exacktor yes it's ex26 no I don't wish I had a wider one. This one does what I need it to do.

i want to show some thing of the gallery

Is your vacuum system loud? I want to put a cyclone in, but I am afraid of the noise, especially for neighbors. thanks

You definitely made the most of your shop space...nicely done. I am happy to see any woodworker who decides to put their health first when it comes to making dust collection a priority. PVC or metal ducting doesn't matter... they work the same. One suggestion for your shop is an air filtration system either above your tablesaw or your sanding machine areas.


Posted By: Danny     [03/21/2007]
The one reason peole warn against pvc dust collector lines is because of the risk of spark due to static elctricty. If finising is done away from lines it is not a problem.

How long have you had the Exaktor? How was the setup and is it still performing well for you?
