Thread: How’s are you hanging your duct?

    How’s are you hanging your duct?

    I am wondering how is everyone hanging or supporting there duct work to the ceiling? I just ordered the duct work for my cyclone and was wondering the best way to support it that is easy/convenient for installation.

    My ductwork is screwed to the ceiling and to the wall using the type of metal strapping that you can see in the attached photo.

    I made a little wooden bracket to be used with plumbers tape.

    I did what Frank did. Inexpensive, flexible and no problems in years of use.

    I've got a single 6" main that goes across the floor in one place to my main work station.

ID:	71320I have 9 1/2 feet to the rafters. I hung all of my ducting with chains. I have no regret for doing so. Pic attached.

    Good dust collection is truly one of the wonderful things in life---and for life.

    Enjoy,
