Nice looking job, Fred. Very neat. That will be the most time consuming job, right? Everything else is just plug and go, huh?

Nice Clear View cyclone set up, Fred. You are progressing nicely with the installation. You will probably end up with a few extra pieces, I always do.

 

I am using the Clear View 6" blast gates ,they are very reasonable and work great.

I had picked up some CV blast gates at an on line auction and do like them better than shop built ones, I'll be replacing some of mine old ones with them. Besides, some of the shop built ones have swollen making them not work so well. The slides really stick.

Our WW club had the good fortune of having a meeting at their plant in Kent, WA before they moved to NC?  and the owner showed us how they made those blast gates, They are engineered with a small hole in the back of the slide track to allow air to be sucked into them to keep the sawdust from packing in the slide track. You might be able to clean out the homemade ones and add a hole to keep them from clogging up. But I do like the CV ones.

It is looking real good ,Fred. I like the column feeding the TS and the RAS, you can easily tap into that for more machines in the future. Way to go with the long 90's made out out 45's the airflow will love that. Looks like you used large wire ties to hang the ducts from the ceiling, good idea, I used the perforated plumbers plastic strapping, wish I would have thought of that.

Are you going to hang the lights below the ducts, or did you figure in the light layout when running the ducts. I hung all mine below on chains.

That is a lot of work for one guy Fred, I had a helper when I did mine.

Great pictures too.

Holy cow Fred...that's a lot of overhead work. My shoulders just ache looking at that.:P Quite impressive.

It is taking shape quickly now and looks great. I really hope I'll be able to see it all in person this summer.:)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
