    Cyclone ductwork for the new shop

    Hey! I finally got the piping for my cyclone.
    All I need now is to contact the boys who built the shop and put them back to work.

    Update: Would you believe I haven't heard from my builders in a year now and the man called me yesterday to see how I was getting along?
    On the same day I got the piping home.
    He will be here today to give me an estimate.





    Thanks to Marty for the advice on where to get a good deal on the piping and fittings. I saved over $600 from the price PSI quoted me.

    Won't be long before I can finally use the BIG tools!

    YIPPIE!

    The way I figure it Vaughn it's cheaper to do it only once.

    Not only that Tod but the man (Bruce) is a pleasure to work with. He will bend over backwards to help you. He remembered Marty when I mentioned where I found his company.

    That is some great looking ducting!

    Don,

    Boy, those pictures sure bring back memories!!!

    I'm glad you hooked up with Bruce. As you said, he's a true pleasure to work with...and it doesn't hurt that his prices are really hard to beat!

    So, what size pipe(s) are we looking at? Looks like you got a few different runs there...

    I didn't notice any rubber gaskets. Are they under the flanges in that box? If you didn't get any, you really should consider them. They make a big difference in sealing the flanges...and they're very cheap!

    Please don't hesitate to let me know if I can help you with any questions or challenges you might run into. The pipe isn't all that hard to install. And once you get your first Vanstone done, it'll be a piece of cake!

    Oh wait...you're not doing the work yourself!

    Seriously, you're still welcome to have your helpers ask anything they might need to...

    Good luck...

    There is 4" 5" and 6" in there Marty.

    I didn't notice any rubber gaskets. Are they under the flanges in that box? If you didn't get any, you really should consider them. They make a big difference in sealing the flanges...and they're very cheap!

    The gaskets are being mailed to me. He forgot he had included them. Also, he wouldn't let the floor sweep leave the building. He wasn't happy with the way his man made it. He will make another and ship it also.

    Please don't hesitate to let me know if I can help you with any questions or challenges you might run into. The pipe isn't all that hard to install. And once you get your first Vanstone done, it'll be a piece of cake!

    Uh oh What the heck is a Vanstone?

    Oh wait...you're not doing the work yourself!

    Seriously, you're still welcome to have your helpers ask anything they might need to...

    Bruce said the very same thing. He made several of the long runs extra long and didn't cap them so they could be cut to size. He said if the installers needed to call him feel free. I sure may take you up on your offer when I get to the point of playing with the blast gates and hook ups.

    Good luck...

    Here is the setup for a 24'X24' shop.





    This is the Cyclone I'm installing.

    I have already changed the position of most of the machines but the hookups will still work.

    Thank everyone for the comments.
