Hi fellow LJ’s, just a quick question, I have almost completed my cyclone DC, it’s made of 99% wood, however inside there is a short piece of 4” PVC, about 14-16”. Here is the question, since there is only one small part of the DC that is using PVC pipe inside the cyclone, do I need to run a bare ground wire through the pipe, or it’s not enough PVC pipe to generate that much static electricity?
The piping in the shop will be flexible hose were I need to make turns, but the bulk of the piping will be sheet metal duct work, should that be grounded also?
Thanks, if you want to see what I mean about the CycloneDC out of wood here is a link to my blog LINK
