Hi everyone.
I was just wondering if i have to run a grounding wire in my dust collection pipeing.
If so do i have to ground to every machine. Table saw, miter saw, router,drill press, planer and sander.
Any info would be great.

What did you use for your piping? If it is PVC, then I would highly advise it to prevent ‘zaps’ from getting you from time to time.

There is no solid evidence that ungrounded PVC piping causes fires, explosions, etc., but I know from experience it does build up some static that will zap you from time to time. I took a thin copper wire and ran it the entire length of my piping, to every machine and then to a common ground, and it stopped the static.

Good luck.
