Default sorry guys didn't now where to stick this

Ok, Lots of guys must be using their laptops in the shop.I see lots of missing letters and i am guessing its a sawdust problem. First start the compressor or get one of those cans of compressed air from the source.Then fire away.Lol

Hi Rene,

I would suggest, the Lobby??

Sometimes the problem is operator error....that's my excuse anyway. My keyboard cannot spell.....LOL

I am wary of taking my camera outside to the woodworking area let alone my laptop..

That reminded me of one of the earlier companies I worked for. They had an IBM System36 and were told to install it in an air conditioned and humidity controlled room. They had it set up in the back of their sawmill in Queensland .

Sawdust, heat and humidity....no problem.........

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Often the problem isn't so much sawdust in the keyboard as a loose nut behind the keyboard.

Cheers,

How about forgetting where your glasses are. And yes the dog did eat one pair of glasses this year. He also ate the insides of my shoes.

not a laptop, but a snack-size ziplock baggie over and iphone is a great shop-laptop. I usually let it play pandora, and look up stuff of forums when I fubar things. It's amazing how good google is at fractional math, and pdf manuals for stuff you bought off craigslist.

Best bet is a custom keyboard cover. They cost about &20 usd but are well worth it. I learned the hard way by spilling liquid on my old laptop and it cooked.

I prefer using silicone keyboards. They are impervious to dust or liquids and you can wash them in the sink with Dawn dish soap if they get dirty. You can roll them up for transport. Microcenter.com always has these for $20.
