am in desperate need for advice about my basement woodshop and the
furnace/central air unit. we share the same space, with no separation.
the local utility guy just told me on the phone that my options are as
follows, or I will kill the unit ...
1) Turn off the unit while working (freeze the family.) at the end of
the session, open the front, vacuum it out and the area immediately
around it before turning it back on.
2) Box in the unit and figure out someway to supply air.
a) new outside air supply? sounds expensive.
b) louvered opening in the ``wall'' that backs on to the
laundry room? (lint issues, but obviously much less than sawdust.)
c) cut the access door, with louvers, in the laundry room
wall, which would elimate the workspace used by SWMBO for her jewelry
what do all you guys do about this?
REALLY want to avoid having to move to the garage ...
UPDATE: I currently have a Jet 650 CFM dust collector with two
diverters to handle tablesaw, router, jointer and planer, plus an air
cleaner that I built from the American Woodworker plans a few years
Talking up to the vocal ...
