Thanks for the reply. I wish I worked with a lot of walnut! I’m just a “for fun and function amature” and mostly use MDF/pine/plywood/poplar/maple. Also, I’m thinking that this ejection under my deck on plain old dirt won’t have much of an effect on the neighboring plants (all around 12 feet away).

I mean, most of the noise of the motor is still inside and it’s not too loud anyway. Second, only dust being blown onto dirt that I don’t want stuff to grow on…can’t be bad. Only problem is how to vent to the outside. I’ve got a poured concrete wall and a small basement window I can probably make a jig for. I can vent the basement when the DC is on.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!
