Looking good Jerry and good luck with your eye surgery. Don't sweat it with time you know it will still be there when you get back so take a break and rest up.

Default I moved to the basement too.

I went from a pole barn to the basement a while back, It is nice to have the climate control but the dust and noise can be an issue from time to time

Tom that desk is awesome!! How long did it take to build? I looked at this post earlier and your attachment and missed the pics!!

I know I will like the basement over the garage at least 2X per year summer and winter!! I like the looks of your shop, maybe you could send a couple more this way. Thanks in advance.

Hi there,The desk was a project that I worked on for a few months in the evening hours. My wife works long hours in the winter months so I can make all the noise I need to during that time. I will load more pics of the shop soon as I can, It seems my computer isnt going to let me do that right now. I'll figure it out and post as soonn as I can.

Jerry, I hope all came out well today.
Your shop is really coming together.

Jerry,
I've got a shop in the basement too. The walls have sheetrock but the ceiling is bare to the joists. I have a feeling that the sound getting into the house is through the ceiling, so I'm curious if you have done anything for sound proofing. The best option I have found, without buying high dollar materials, is to double rock the ceiling after putting up cross member pieces, 1x2, to keep the rock from making full contact with the joists.

Hi Jeff
I was fortunate when the house was built; it was built using 18” open web trusses for floor joists. The builder insulated the upstairs from the basement using 8" bats. This gives me a couple advantages, all wire, ducts plumbing is run in the trusses. I will be adding a drop in ceiling and get another measure of sound control plus 8' 10" ceilings. I insulated the exterior walls, (mine is a walk out basement with a garage). I plan on keeping some of the noise producing equipment like air-compressor, dust control etc out there. I have run the saw, Jet 1000B and shop vac and it can be heard up stairs, but it is not loud. Oh yes all the interior walls up and down are insolated to minimize noise and to help with heating and cooling.

I think you should take a look at either the DD or the Mini CV06 Cyclone Order_Page

I have just completed a month and a half of work and had to empty my paint bucket 3 timesbut all that was in the bag on the CT22 vac was a very small hand full

Here is info on the CV06.

"Great for those who are tired of cleaning the filters on their shop vacuums. If you use your shop vacuum for your small sanders etc., this is a great product for you. Can also be used by contractors to clean up houses ....sheet rock dust etc. It will keep the filter on your shop vacuum from getting clogged. It's sized for a standard 2 1/2" shop vacuum hose for the top and for the inlet. The bottom has a piece of MDF board that can be adapted to a container of your choice.....we figured some would want to put it on a 5 gal pail and others would want to put it on a 55 gal drum. The only requirement is that your container be sealed completely and be strong enough to withstand the vacuum created by the shop vac"
