Just curious, but did you try placing your meter around your shop at head level? And if so did you get the same readings?

I just caught up on your whole blog post the last 2 months, looks like a lot of fun and hard work you’ve put into your shop. Are you new to the hobby or just doing a complete upgrade in tools? I like the post who asked you if you won the lottery, your answer was hilarious! lol Looking good, update your workshop on your page, would love to see your layout of your shop. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Lance, as far as woodworking I’d rank myself a 4 out of 10 on an experience scale.

Vince I didn’t but I may do that tomorrow just to see how much difference there is if any.

Have your say...
