I work at a computer for a living and lately I have had web site side work, so I have been sitting in front of a computer WAY TOO MUCH.....
So Saturday, the wife had a class and I decided I was going to get some more work done on the Cyclone ( it's been a year !!! ).
I borrowed a dB meter ( Sound Levels ) and measured the Cyclone. It is 94 dB in the middle of the shop. THIS IS LOUD!!!. I wanted to get a baseline measurement.
My orginal plan had walls around the cyclone. So now I know to be able to use this I have to dampen the sound some.
So here we go......
Well you always needs new tools... I have a room to build for my wife very soon and saw the reviews on circular saws. I picked this one up from the Milwakee refurb store. Ended up with good deal since I got the rip fence free.
This is a GREAT saw. Very heavy duty, a button that locks the blade so you can tighten it with the allen wrench which is included and has a very good holder built into the case.
Here is the general space that has to be enclosed.
I took me about an hour of messing around with angles and space to make sure I can get the canister out of the room and get the air compressor from behind the hotwater heater/furnance.
The ceiling will present a bunch of challenges.
So That's what I did yesterday. I will add to this thread as I get more time. Should be interesting.
The db level is the important thing......
