« Part 9: overhead blast gates installed and affixed new & improved blast gate to wall Part 10 of Dust Collection series Part 11: This is why I installed 6"x4"x6" wye's.... »

I posted my overhead blast gates on the project page. This Saturday, I finished the secondary run of duct for 2 more drops: one near my future lathe station and because I had left over spare duct pieces, went ahead and made a drop near middle of the shop with a blast gate 7’ off the floor for any mobile carts in the future. Figured, since I had spare, might as well put something in the middle as I did my electrical outlet at ceiling middle for a 20’ extension cord reel that is almost my primary electrical outlet. This completes my overhead dust collection. And I’m glad I went through the trouble of making things done right. Next up after the holidays maybe: table saw overhead boom arm dust collection.
