I am continuing the project of revamping my harbor freight dust collector. I have designed a new mounting system for the dc ring. I need to decide how to plug and seal the various holes that used to have bolts in them. There are three sets of two threaded holes for the old mounting method, and one set of two holes where the plastic handle used to be mounted.
I have considered using silicone and the bolts, using silicone alone, or trying to use the foil tape used by HVAC people.
This area would be under pressure (inside to outside).
What would you advise?
