OK some of you wanted to see the dust control box after I got the new tools connected to it. I waited for the latest Grizzly Christmas cataloge to come out then made the jump. I bought a G1071 spindle sander and a Grizzly G1014Z belt and disc. The control levers work great and I have good draw from the 4” blast gates. I did a review on both tools in LJ’s review section. Can’t wait to get back to the WW.

Too cool, a little to clean though. LOL Very nice set up, especially the chain hoist to get things out of your truck. Do you have to ground the metal tubes?

OK OK, I have a problem (disorder)with wanting my shop clean. When I do build something, I make a huge mess, then clean up to do the finishing. My wife complains about my shop being cleaner than the house.
YES I DO BUILD STUFF ! I feel more picked on now than ever. Ya all stop by sometime and help me clean.LOL
Back to the dust mop,

khop: I’m just as bad as you when it comes to a clean shop. These guys looked at my shop and said the same thing. I just can’t help it—- I’m a neatnick! But I too build projects. I can’t stand to walk around in sawdust, and like your wife, mine says the same thing, but I refuse to clean house. lol lol.
Great- looking shop, tho bud, Like me—everything in its place when the chips quit flying. Are we just odd as compared to the others? lol. Later. Rick.

I have that spindle sander too. My only complaint was the way that the dust collection tube necks down just before it mounts to the machine. I figured I could modify it so that it could breath a little better. One of these days I will get around to it!

khop, I share this disease with you.
I clean y shop every day when I finish my day.
This is the only way I know to keep the shop clean.
I cannot stand stepping in the shop in the morning if it is not clean and in order.
Many times my wife asks me what are you doing?. I am cleaning or organizing the shop, and she replies” that;s what you already did yesterday.
My other favorite past time is to tweak, modify and improve my tools.
I am fully aware that I am sick.
