Bob,

Now that you have your Tempest, How do you like it? How Load is it? I see you have added a Muffler? Was it very effective? The layout looks great. I wish I had that much room.

John,
I am very happy with the Tempest and everything you recommended. I’ve found I have to keep at least two ports open to optimize it’s performance but I’ve ran it with everything open and still had good suctions.
I bought and installed the muffler because I believe you took the time to explain some sound attenuation measures you took on your install. The unit is not all that noisy and does not require ear protection when it’s running but I put on the ear protection when I start any machines. I think the muffler helps but there is a lot of mass in the shop walls and large open beams in the ceilings that help keep it quiet. The room is nice but it’s still a compromise from having everything in my home shop.
Thanks again for all your help.
Bob

I envy all of the space you have in your shop.

That is a real nice LONG jointer. They are great for any job. you’ll love it.

That feed system on the band saw is something I have never seen before- feeding from the side. It looks serious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
