Finally discovered how to change a black pattern to magenta in order to see contrast with the blade.
1. scan black pattern and save as JPG file.
2. Upload into Inkscape (free program)
3. OPEN pattern to screen and select it (boxes pattern with X’s), select Filters, select colors then select extract channel
4. pick Magenta, Select view item box and select apply. At this point you should have a magenta pattern.
5. In file select print and there you are.

+My 1 hp dust collector is 75 decibels. If I enclosed it with a framing of acoustical ceiling tile with a noise absorption of .5 (along with exhaust venting); can I expect the rating to go down to less than 50 decibels?

Have your say...
