    The static build-up is an old argument. As a 40 year safety professional I can say, that, they have never proved a static discharge fire in a hobby type operations. In an industrial setting, yes. However, the conditions are much different between a hobby shop operation and a commercial one.
    I defy an insurance agent to prove that static build-up discharge in plastic piping caused a fire. Every argument he can come up with, I could counter with documented studies and testing.
    The real argument with plastic is, grounding or no grounding on the pipe. Since plastic does build a static charge rapidly it should be grounded. However, not for fear of fire, but for the fear of the actual discharge. People don't stop to think what can happen here. A strong enough discharge can raise serious issues with such things as; pacemakers, hearing aids and other medical devices. Get surprised by a zap and you don't know what your going to hit or fall into when you jump.

    Hey, Gene
     
    Stick made me do it. Do you think they're ready for us here?
     
    I really like what I see so far. The navigation is a little tricky but I'll figure it out. I'm waiting for the established members to jump in, so I can get to know them. Hope they're not put off by our banter. You know...idle hands and all...

    John, what is the policy for publishing information/articles/reference materials in PDF form? Most of the info is public domain type stuff.

    Nope, sorry John. I'm afraid it is a holdover from some banter back and forth on another forum. It's a long story and will have to wait for another day.

    Hi, Guys and Gals,
     
    I'm new to the site and I'm always willing to expand my horizons. I like to help others and get help when I need it...usually with a little humor on the way to keep things alive.
     
    I've been woodworking on and off for 40 years, so I'm still learning. I'm, also, a member of Routerforum.com. I know for a fact that there are several of us sneaking in, so, I hope your willing to put up with us. Hopefully, I can bring something to the table.
     
    Thanks, for having me...
