    Dust Collection Likes and Dislikes

    I wouldn't change anything on my system. I have a simple on/off switch the controls a 30 amp contactor. The switch is no more than a single step from any of my machines.

    Better than double sided tape

    We use this to hold parts on the cnc. Four pieces just 1/2" wide by 1-=1/2" long will hold a electric body to the table for final milling.

    Interesting CL ad - air compressor from an engine

    The last cabinet shop I worked in had a compressor that was a ford 302 with cylinder heads that had read valves. Only two cylinders would be pumping the others would cycle in two at a time as needed depending on the cfm needed. I think it was rated at 40 hp and 105 cfm.
