Free if you come pick it up in SLC - 0 replies
When I bought my Clearview DC several years ago, it came with a 6” suction hose about 20 feet long.This is a high quality hose with a grounding copper braided cable.I never used this hose. I had it do for sale twice and I never had one call for it.If you want it and if you come get it, it is yours free.PM me if you want it.

I shall have a full blown blog when this is finished.

I showed you my mobile wood turning station at the beginning of the week. As soon as I published the pictures, I knew that I wanted to add a dust collection.Here you go.The dust collection works quite well for smaller chips, works even better when sanding and ( not surprisingly) not so well for larger chips.Thank you for watching

Good old tools never die! - 2 replies
When I moved in the house that my wife and her mother owned, there was this wheel barrow, the steel part was in good shape but the wooden parts were gone. So I decided to replace the wooden parts.I used oak from pallets to make the new parts. As I already wrote in a previous post, when I cam from France 30 years ago I took with me number of t...

How to know the truth about air cleaners/filters? - 31 replies
I know that it was a post about his subject last week but I believe that it was not fully investigated.Even if I never paid a penny for it, for many years I receive Wood Magazine.
