I’m putting in a new 50’ X 35’ metal building for my RV and truck. This will leave me a 20’ X 35’ area for a wood shop “Man Cave” that I have been wanting for a while.
Question 1 – I’m planning to put 2 boxes in the floor for 110 & 220 volt plugs 10’ apart for a table saw and another machine in the middle of the floor. Should I also put in 4” or 6” PVC pipes for dust collection next to the floor power boxes? I don’t like pipes hanging from overhead as it seems they would always be in the way…???
Question 2 - I’m planning a large cyclone central vacuum system for the shop with ducts to the various equipment. I’m thinking about putting the dust collector outside the wood shop (still in the metal building) for noise reasons. However, this will ‘change out the air’ in the shop when it is running. I live in the Hill Country of Texas where AC is needed thru the summer. Should I reconsider and put the dust collector in the wood shop to keep the cool air in? I only plan to run it when a machine is on…
Thanks for any feedback
