Here's a little trick I use
Ask the boss for her old nylons slip one of the legs over the filter, use a tie wire, off the bread wrapper ,, you should get 4ea. pre filters out of one pair of nylons...,then when the can is full pull the filter off with your new prefilter ,slip it off and blow out the filter and it's just like new again...
Just a note,, the board for the hot pans that come out of the oven, pickup some brass tacks, the one they use on leather chairs that stick up about 1/8" to a 1/4" high, drill some holes tap in some tacks and it will not burn the board..
then I'm sure you can put on a coat of poly. to keep it looking neat in the kitchen
Plus if you pickup one of the
5 Gallon Dust Collection Cyclone Separator http://www.grizzly.com/products/5-Ga...eparator/G6102
You will not need to clean the vac out all the time and the filter
You can find the big ones that are the size of 30 gal.trash can, then just slip in a plastic bag and in ten mins.you can dump it quick and easy and fuss no muss
Two Stage Dust Separator Lid ,note the 4" ports on this one (30 gal. one )
Cyclone Dust Separator Lid, 2 1/2" ports on this one
This dust collector separator increases the efficiency and capacity of standard dust collection systems.
Designed to fit securely on top of a standard 30-gallon metal trash can, this molded ABS fitting is engineered to use cyclonic action to drop out larger particles from the dust flow.
The fitting features molded inlets and outlets which can be easily connected to standard systems using 4” flexible hose . You will be amazed at how well it works!! The Dust Collection separator comes in two sizes: 30 gallon can size and 5 gallon size. http://www.ptreeusa.com/dustacces.htm
I am interested also as I am moving into the basement area. I will post pics soon, I have a lot of work to do and few $$$ to do them so for know I will just run some 20amp 125 volt receptacles, do a little sheet rock in areas that will be more difficult to reach later, and just move in and spread out. Oh yes, I was saying I use a shop vac, but notice the filter is all to quickly clogged with dust. Should I maybe wrap it with some other filter material like an old t shirt for example?? I don't see the bigger pieces being a problem.
