Last night, I picked up some ducting that I had purchased from a
company that was selling a dust collector on ebay. It happened to
mention in the post that they had some ducting available too.
They sent me an inventory and price list for all of their spiral
galvanized and neoprene ducting in various sizes. I purchased all of
their 24 ga. 4" (about 50 ft), 22 ga. 7" (about 45 ft), plus three 7"
long radius die formed elbows for $81.00. They also threw in a 7 x 7 x
7 die formed wye and about a half dozen blast gates. Only one of them
is 7" though.
If I got ripped, don't tell me. I prefer to think of this as a gloat.
Further gloat, I am planning to hook this to my two Torit Cyclones
which I got recently. I also already have about 3 dozen 4" commercial
blast gates. All of this stuff combined so far, has cost me less than
$400. If I don't "suck", at least my system should.
I've been known to go a little overboard. This is a hobby shop. Most
of my machines are three phase. They usually are much cheaper due to
less competition on resale market.
The reason for two DC's is that I will be using one for metal
grindings and don't want to mix them with sawdust. I had gotten a Jet
2hp with Cartridge filter but decided to return it. I'm hoping to set
up a really good system to decrease health risks and to reduce
nuisance dust to a minimum. SWMBO got a little tired of the dust
factor in the garage as well as into the house.
mnterpfan has left the building. Apparently, he got sucked into some
sort of vortex or cyclone. He is now known as RobDingnagian1.
Mac, it does actually make me feel better. Thanks.
Dave Hall, the blast gates were auction wins. I may have a few left
over when the tunnelling is completed. Maybe, I'll have to get some
more machines. hmmm?
Everyone, like I said, they have more. However, most of it is bigger.
Some 8", a lot of 10", some 12" and a lot of Rubber ducting.
