« Part 6: Another saturday, working more on 6" blast gates..almost there Part 7 of Dust Collection series Part 8: Working on more blast gates.... »

Weeeee….the joy. More dust collection stories! When had to install drywall on my ceiling, I had to remove the 6” HVAC ducting. Now it is time to re-install. But first, some modifications: overhead blast gates at strategic spots. Also, have to move the ducting 12-14” away from the wall to make room for these blast gates. Going to use jack chain and single hole lag bolts (the kind you see in office space ceilings to hold up the drop ceiling tie-wires).
