« Part 2: Copper air lines, small shop 101 Part 3 of Projects in process. . . series Part 4: round end table »

I’ve added these entries not in order of how they were installed rather as I’ve had time.

As soon as I decided to convert my old garage into a shop, space was top of the list. When looking at how best to deal with things I decided to go with a cyclone and Pen state is within driving distance and they offered free layout. The close distance really helped as like most projects of this type it required a few returns and exchanges as I changed routing of duct a bit.

If anyone is looking into pen state I was really happy with both web/catalog and the store. Everyone really helped and had first experience with the products and how best to use them.

When looking at redoing the garage I decided to add a small lean to to the back so I could put the air compressor and cyclone out back. I still need to add a return to the lean to but need to figure out the best way without adding all the noise back into the system.

After using the cyclone a month or so I decided to add a vacuum pump and wired a light into the shop for when it’s full. If you’ve ever tried to empty one of these bin full it’s not fun.
