Well maybe motivation instead of inspiration is more accurate. I took a could days of much need vacation and I spent today tinkering in the shop all day and reading LJ. I got to Neil’s blog, NBeener, and re-read his stove-pipe mod for his HF DC. It motivated me to start sealing some of my leaks. I said some!
I sealed all around the dust collector using foil tape after wiping it down with a rag and mineral spirits.
The secrete is to use small pieces and just do small areas at a time. I used pieces about 7-9” long. If you, read as ME, cut too long of pieces of that foil tape, it gets a bit unruly and hard to work with.
I also started sealing around the blast gates. Those plastic blast gates leak like a sieve! There’s on so much that I can do with them but ever little bit helps.
I did seal a couple of the PVC joints too with the foil tape but the PVC joints should be good. I put them together with silicone caulking. You can see where it squeezed out in the picture above.
Thanks Neil for the inspiration!
