ok i dont have a spinny thing yet but i do have the desire in the future, so i am trying to get the right space and DC for one. if you folks have seen my layout .skp file in a earlier post i was thinkun of puttin it next the double doors that open to the wood storage room. the door would open against it. i know those critters make alot of chips when you get them workin right. so my question is ,,would a port in the floor near the lathe be sufficient? and then the room needed for one would be? just rough idea would be helpful steve .A has a old oliver that is around 58" long and he said around 18" deep so in my mind i could put the tail towards the dbl doors and let the door open against when needed, while workin on it i would have the doors closed so would that be ok to do so in your opiion.. stu you dont count you do things in a shoe box already i need more room than that. thanks for the help.
