@MrUnix, Raised flooring system for computer room and a liquid driven metal chip removal system for a large Aerospace company factor I helped design was the inspiration for the idea. The aerospace application had a set of fluid channels in the floor that carried the machined chips away from each machine tool. The materials used in that shop were really pricy so recovering waste was worth the investment.

I’m not sure I’ll go that far to start with. But if my experiments on creating a downdraft from the ceiling to floor to be collected by a series of intakes works even moderately well, it’ll be something to discuss within the community and vendors. My goal is to make my shop “safer” and more comfortable for me to work in, I’ll leave it to others to commercialize the idea.
