DCP_1278.JPG (637583 bytes)DCP_1280.JPG (572090 bytes)I have all of the tools moved into their new home. Now to get everything put away.
DCP_1290.JPG (601599 bytes)DCP_1288.JPG (541581 bytes)I have got some stuff put away, and I also have the electrical ready for final inspection. I am working on inventorying the dust collection pipe so I can get an order together.
DCP_1300.JPG (543300 bytes)I have the pipe/bar clamp rack hung up
DCP_1292.JPG (697113 bytes)Here is most of the dust collection pipe and fittings I have. I have ordered a few more pieces for the main trunk.
DCP_1294.JPG (474601 bytes)I am getting started on the dust collection piping. This drop is for the tablesaw. I ran the duct under the floor before I poured the concrete. You can see my automatic blast gate on the drop.
DCP_1296.JPG (267657 bytes)DCP_1306.JPG (557398 bytes)To hold the pipe to the walls and ceiling I made brackets out of 2x6s for corner mounting points (left bracket) and 2x4s for surface mounts. The lower right bracket is for the pipe that go over a trust/stud, and the top right bracket is for a pipe that ends up offset of a trust/stud. I hold the pipe into the bracket with duct strap.
