mine's mostly for neighbors that drop by.. it's set up so the best
view of the screen is from the driveway..
I usually have it on, bar style, (muted) when football games are on,
so I can glance up and see the score or something..
You forgot the 21st century, techno savvy, cutting edge, woodshop audio
tool: an iPod.
Dustproof, and with 10,000 tunes at your fingertips (mine only has 6,378 at
the moment, but I'm struggling along).
If you can drink in the shop and work safely at the same time you are a
better man than I. Personally, I find myself entering the "stooopid
zone" after just one beer and more than that is almost scary. But that
is me and to each his own ...

It's been many, many years since I've drank even a regular beer,
and even quite a few since I've drank any "non-alcoholic" beer. But,
even then, I could feel a buzz after just one NA beer, and after two
could barely get off the sofa. I do miss the taste at times, but I
don't miss the feeling, so I'll pass on any of it, anymore.
This from a guy who occassionally went thru a case at one sitting,
and walked away. But, it's better this way.
Sanity is vastly over-rated.
Oh c'mon man, cut the jokester some slack already.
Really stupid idea.
Really stupid idea.
Would be nice, very nice, but distracting. Hence, a really stupid idea.
Necessary for the stupid person who has the above three items in the shop.
I was being silly. I think about everyone got it.
I do keep a supply of beer bottles in the shop. They go in empty, and leave

At the price of TVs these days...... You can buy a decent 19 inch for $100
and throw it away after 3-4 years. DVDs are cheap too but I agree with
previous poster they probably are a lot more sensitive..... but for $49 who
cares. Also, run yourself a small rotating fan next to TV to blow dust
away. Think of all the radios that are playing in the shops for years and
years and nobody thinks anything about them.
You could take the approach used in dealing with electrical and electronic
gear in a hazardous environment. Put it in a sealed enclosure with a
positive air pressure on it from your air compressor. You'd need to feed it
with a pressure regulator and use a low pressure setting (maybe 5 psi).
You'd also need to have some venting for heat and air flow to let the
regulator do its job.
For radio and CDs, I bought a "water resistant" smallish set. Worked
well for nigh onto two years now. I do vacuum out the CD enclosure on
occasion. For TV etc., I would bet that outdoor "moisture resistant"
sets exist. Think beach, that land of sand, sunburn and seagull shit.
