Took a foraging trip to Home Depot last night. Picked up last of 5”x6” adapters, 6” Elbow, and Gamma Lid with 3 Gal. Bucket. —only thing left is Nano filter which should arrive this week. Scored a Rigid Tool Box Bucket also during my trip. Love this modular system. It allows to be store tools into quick access kits that I can grab, stack and go to job sites easily. Currently I’m storing them in a cabinet, but expect to put them on trackwall shelves s...

Part 5: Sanding Station: Ideation

02-03-2016 07:16 PM by bkseitz | 12 comments »

Started brainstorming this morning around building my sanding station. Decided rather than have my current assembly table cut up to have a inset for a downdraft box I’d build a complete sanding station. The idea I’ve come up with so far has a downdraft table on one side with built-in DC & power and on the other side would be my stationary bench and oscillating sanders on the other. The downdraft table would be similar to the Stumpy Nubs design as well as have a front vice...

Part 6: New Respirator

08-29-2016 11:18 PM by bkseitz | 5 comments »

Purchased a new Respirator [3M 7500] based upon Marc S’s example. Been looking for a Respirator that wouldn’t fog up my glasses. The past few I’ve bought either are too hard to breath through or fog up my glasses. Put the 7500 this morning after Amazon delivered. Awesome fit and no fog. This in addition to all the other shop air quality project I’ve been doing should make the environment healthier for me to work in. -Thanks Marc

Part 7: Box Fan Air Cleaner

09-05-2016 10:42 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

While brainstorming around for how-to attach Band Saw Fence came up with an idea for using two of the spaces underneath my outfeed table. Decided to make these into box fan air cleaners. Seems like the perfect stop next to table saw and low to the ground. This should help keep the dust away from my mouth and nose :-)

Part 8: OutFeed Table Upgrade and Dust Masks

10-12-2016 09:04 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

With just a few finishing touches to complete for router table and finishing Band Saw Fence, I can get back to Air Quality Projects in the shop. Came up with idea to convert the left and right side cabinet spaces on out-feed table into ground level air filtration systems. Originally I was considering having intake vents on a ground level ducting to HF DC. However, that seemed more complicated that the benefit of having a single collection source. Still focus on having a downward flo...
