Hold on there a minute big boy. Before "we" get to far
along into this thing I think maybe you might want to hear
what happened to my brother's best friend's brother-in-law's
brother. Seems there was a particularly bad/nasty gaseous
build up and to make a long story short, shop dawg lost and
eye and the entire shop burnt down to the ground.
I am pondering other applications though.
Yeah, well, wif evidence like dat I 'spose this means you won't be
Even if I agree to paint it purple

Just to digress considerably...
Years ago a rather crazy Turk we knew decided to demonstrate the fact that
certain bodily gasses were capable of being ignited. This guy originally had
hair like Osama Bin Laden, but, after ignition, looked more like Mohatma
Ghandi and he also gave flashdance a whole new meaning.
He lost all hair from the thighs, crotch, stomach, chest, beard and hair in
what seemed like a 1/2 second flash-bulb type burn. No lasting damage but I
still get tears in my eyes just thinking of it.
The things we do.
Some part of the vac should be grounded via the wall plug so you could use
the wire trick running along the tube and tie it to some metal part on the
vac, like the motor mount screw. I'd try just attaching to the base of the
hose before playing with a long annoying wire. Maybe you could strip some
Romex wire and use that (remember to sand the connecting points to remove
the wire sealant).
I'm not sure if this will work, but I've read on here that running a wire
inside the tube, taping it to the walls will stop the buildup of
electricity. Running it on the outside is probably the second best thing to
do, and mounting it to the base may help?!?! not sure, but easy to try.
I get a hell of a zap too btw, but now with a real dust collector I don't
have the problem!
Jack, I'm in the process of making a camisole for my shop
but I have white walls, a limeish green floor, my machines
are mostly gray (grey David), I have some that are blue
(50's vintage Craftsman), a garish green one (Powermatic)
and quite a bit of MDF I've used for shop infrastructure
items (screw/hardware shelves). And this isn't even
mentioning the colors (colours David) in my wood stash
(everything from ash to zebrawood). This leave me in a
quandary. I know that I could probably use any color as I
would be borrowing from the complementary item but I just
wanted to bounce this off you to see if you had a
recommendation, a "one color fits all".
By the way, believe it or not but I don't have anything
urine yellow (DeWalt) so I don't think I would want to go
that way. What do you think?
Thanks in advance.
