Thanks Stick and Charles. This is superb. I'm going to add my 2 cents. The pix is of an enclosed space between my shop shed and office shed. About 4 ft wide, pretty well sealed now, the DC and chip collector with a return filtered opening. The purpose is to recirculate highly filtered air from the DC back into the shop to conserve AC or heated air. The hose in the foreground has been shortened and straightened out. You can see the return port at the upper right in the picture. This installation was inspired by Stick's suggestions in this string. I've still got a few more steps to set up, in particular, the "snorkle" for my router.

I recently added a Shark Guard (see pix) to my table saw, which greatly reduced flying sawdust. You can also install an overarm DC unit like the one in the picture.

I hope this string stays visible. Dust collection is an important element of woodworking. Just ask the huge number of retired, relatively young carpenters and woodworkers stopped cold by COPD.

Save a copy of the link to this string in an easy to find file so you can send new members directly to it.

Given some free time I'll be looking at what can and should be included in a sticky thread that will be at the top of this new sub forum. I know links to Bill Pentz and Phil Thien will be in it for sure.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Are the photos of the TS setup of your new shark system? If so, additional more details and photos would be a nice addition to this series. I know you discussed it earlier but alas I have lost track of that series.
