First, an acknowledgement that I am hoping to become a woodworker, I am not one (yet). I have a Shopsmith, my shop is in the basement of our townhouse, and it is also where the washer, dryer, HVAC unit, hot water tank, and all our storage is, so the space serves many uses. I bought a Shark Guard for the Shopsmith. There is a huge difference in the sawdust on top of the unit, and on the floor, than whenI just used the DC on just the bottom of the table saw. This is coming from a highly inexperienced woodworker, but I strongly recommend the Shark Guard. I saw a huge improvement.
The clock of life is wound but once.
