« Part 12: Progress on the dust collection upgrades finally! Part 13 of Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. series Part 14: Up, up and away... »

So I am coming out of the 4” with the wyes, and making my turn to go to the machines, and I am finding that by the time I get through the wye, the 45, a short nipple, a blast gate, and another nipple (provides a better fit than attaching the hose straight to the blast gate…) I am 12-16” out from the wall. And there is a LOT of rotational force being applied to the pipe. For now, I am simply keeping it from rotating with pipe strap, but I don’t like this arrangement. It will have to wait until after the shop is done being set up with dust collection, but I am considering building a couple of custom brackets to provide more secure attachment of the pipe, to keep it in place, and from turning…

I have abandoned the tape in favor of going with the clear silicone. I am not going to undo the few taped joints I have left, but am simply sticking with what has been working well for me so far.

As I was running the lines, I did have an awful thought last night… What on earth am I going to use for a dust hood on the drill press? I have pretty much everything BUT the drill press and the miter saw figured out…
