Well Cecil B
I would have to say thats a very cool introduction!
The table looks to work fine.
Video shows everything OK no technical isues there .
I have the same problem with ROS trying to set them down!
Just what is ADHD I could not work it out, I thought it was something to do with your location, ...but your in Saint James, Minnesota, and its not your initals ...all very odd.

-- Regards Rob

Really, Tom? It’s May 23rd, and there’s still that much snow on the ground in Manitssocold?
Brilliant work, but,
Two things:
1) Wouldn’t it be more effective with the hose inlet on the bottom?;
B) You see that spout sticking off the back of your ROS? A hose can be connected right to that, you know.
I know what ADHD is. Also, I know what OCD is. Also, I know I’m fairly anal, sometimes.

Robert,

ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Mine is an unmedicated inattentive type. Low level patience, but my brain is moving in many directions at once.

Mark,

The inlet is set so it can sit on my bench or in the video on my saw. The plywood produces a vortex toward the hole. I wrote about it in my previous blog.

Had a hose set up on the ROS. would you believe that the winter makes the shop very dry and I got zapped from the electrical charge build up. LOL!

Will be making the exhaust port hole bigger. The plywood over half the table also helps . Planning a hood for it much like Klaus Kiefier.

Thanks for checking it out. Night!

You are getting might fancy with these video’s Tom. Nice work..
One thing I have done to my downdraft table is to get some solid thin pads that allow me to cover up different configurations of the holes when necessary. It takes a tremendous amount of suction from a dust collector to provide sufficient suction on every hole of a large downdraft table. Many times when sanding a smaller piece I find it advantageous to close off (cover) many of the holes that aren’t being used to increase suction on the table

Greg,

Thanks for checking out the video. The video with me using the ROS is without a half inch piece of plywood that sits on one side while sanding. To increase air volume draw on the other side. As I told mark I did have a hose on the ROS while experimenting, and it built up static charges that zapped me.

If I do it again I will not use the pegboard as I drilled out around a hundred holes. The larger holes and fewer holes may also increase the downdraft. My new 3 hp dust collector might help?

And Mark I just checked and I found I have one of those too!

Lew,

Lots of on line information. But if it doesn’t create problems for you it’s OK. :)

Thanks for commenting.
