Well I’ve been acquiring tools & machines for my (very near) future basement workshop. I have already gotten; TS, SCMS (w/ Craftsman MS stand), RAS, plunge router (w/ homemade table & fence), BS (benchtop), DP (benchtop), jointer, planer, tenoning jig, mortising machine, chisels and assorted measuring, marking & handtools.
Now here is where safety came first. Before starting to acquire more tools & machines (I already had some of the basic DIY type tools), the first thing I ordered was the 2HP HF DC. To go along with that I purchased a used furnace squirrel cage blower, in order to make an air cleaner. What I am most excited about right now is that I just got off the phone with Wynn Eviromental. My 35A274NANO Cartidge filter kit will be here begining of next week!!! Yea!!!
Safety first means: I MUST have DC & air filtration before any further shop projects are even considered.
I’m currently painting and figuring out shop layout so that I can run (short runs) 4” gavanized ducting to appropriate places in the shop. I will be incorporating a Thien Baffle along with the 35A Cartridge filter for my DC upgrade. Then once the DC is Up & Running, it will be time to actually build my air cleaner. These two projects are the first priority for my shop, remember SAFETY FIRST!!!
