  1. Hello, again.

    Thanks all! Much appreciated. Once I get this set of antibiotics out of the way, I'll hopefully be getting a permanent port put in so that I no longer have to worry about these PICC lines..
  2. Hello, again.

    THanks guys. Yes they do get boring after a while but those good looking nurses aren't boring at all LOL.
  3. Hello, again.

    Hi all. It's been a while since I was able to venture in here and chat with everyone. I am home, and have been for just under a week, after having spent a couple weeks in the hospital AGAIN, because of what was believed to be a blood clot in my leg. Turns out that it was an equally bad infection. I am still on IV antibiotics from home, therefore there will be no turning for me until at least Thursday, the 22nd, since the antibiotics wont end until at least the 21st. I hope everyone has had a great weekend doing whatever it is you wanted to do.

    No I upgraded to 10 a couple years back, and it is also on the new computer. Sorry John. Are you having trouble with it?
  5. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! January 29th, 2018

    Good afternoon all, unfortunately I'm back in the hospital again. I do not know how long I'll be here this time but it's looking like right at a week. I'll keep you posted.

    These that we are talking about Ron, have a "screened in" opening in the front to bring the dust in, and I assume the air is then filtered and pushed out the back side through an opening there. Lew has a great shot of one in an earlier post. Thank you kindly! I am assuming that having the unit up high (where the dust is airborne) is what you want, otherwise there would be no need to hang them. I have no way to hang one but it can sit on top of the closet and pull dust from the air there. The other alternative would be to set it on a table directly behind the lathe if there is enough room, which there would not be unless I did some shuffling around.

    Oh John, to answer your question, yes, having the air cleaner would indeed get me back to turning like I used to. Especially if it is a quiet one.
  8. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    Cool thanks Lew. Just FYI guys, the closet that I would put it on if it would work there, is 2ft deep 6'6" high and has approximately 14" clearance from top of closet to the ceiling.
  9. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    GrandpaDave brings up an issue that I hadn't even thought of which is vibration of the unit. I have NO idea about how much any of these would vibrate since I never have owned one. IF it will sit still on the closet as i want it to, then I have no issues, but if it moves, then I would need to find a way to secure it to the floor, or the closet. Any information you guys can give me on this is most appreciated. John, If it would stay where I put it without shifting, then yes Lew's system would probably do just fine. This is a granny sized apartment. It's probably 15x25'. So those of you that know about dust evac and air cleaning can get a good idea from that whether these would work. I do like the idea of having whatever it is on some sort of remote control. If any of you wish to speak to me directly about this, that's fine, you probably have my phone numbers anyway. I know Ron does. Feel free to call anytime before 9pm. Hey Al! thank you, it feels great to be back here again.
  10. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    Thanks Lew, that is similar to one of the Grizzly's I was looking at. I like that remote idea too. John, the stuff that just falls on the floor, I have a 5 gallon shop vac for that, but it would be neat if I had a system that would handle both issues, but too expensive and too noisy usually, for an apartment setting.
  11. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    Sure can do that John. Here are at least 2 of the ones I had considered, but they do not pull dust directly away from the lathe like I ultimately need, but it would at least do a considerable job. http://www.grizzly.com/products/Hanging-Air-Filter-3-Speed/G0738?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7NbP1rP22AIVCw9pCh1f4gOgEAYYByABEgKklvD_BwE&utm_campaign=zPage&utm_source=grizzly.com http://www.grizzly.com/products/Heavy-Duty-Double-Air-Filter-with-Remote-Control/G9956?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7NbP1rP22AIVCw9pCh1f4gOgEAYYBSABEgIL7fD_BwE&utm_campaign=zPage&utm_source=grizzly.com these would not hang from the ceiling in this case, but would sit on the top of a closet where Shadow is.
  12. Another Use For Your Cell Phone

    Dang, Thanks Lew!
  13. Charles Nichols Says, "HI"

    Hi guys! Yep I have sleep issues and swallowing issues and have been having those for some time now! Add to that the lack of a "noiseless" filtering system, I can't keep the dust from getting to the lungs. So my woodturning has been suffering a lot. Sure I have a shop vac which is noisy, but that doesn't do much for the airborne dust particles. Very sorry I have not been around lately, the last month has really been hard for other reasons too, which are family related so I wont get into that here. Holler at me anytime, by phone or here on the forum! Thanks Ron for checking on me, I think I needed that!
  14. Back to Top Arrow

    No prob at all.
  15. Where are all the good drill bits?

    When you can lean up against the door of a brand new truck, and actually put a dent in it, there is something wrong there LOL.
