Ther was a nice cabinet with instructions and drawings in WoodSmith some
years ago, If you you go to that site and do a search you can buy that
particular issue. I built it about 10 years ago. The cabinet rolls on
casters, has an area to store a fence and miter gauge, 8 drawers, and 2
storage areas plus dust collection.
You ground the system so that you do not get a static electrical shock and
to help prevent clogs.
The question is: How do I ground the system? I run a bare wire inside the
You can run the wire on the outside of the hoses or pipes.
Well...I am sure there are going to be many who tell me this is a terrible
idea.......BUT.....after reading everything I could before I set up my dust
collector in my little shop (used to be the garage), I use some flex tubing,
and some pvc drain pipe in mine. I have the pvc grounded as you say, but
the flex isn't at all.....the pvc I grounded just because there seemed to be
more static discharge on it than the flex hose.
I have a smaller section of flex hose that I use with some of my smaller
tools....sanders, etc....and there really isn't that much static electricity
Soo.....if you do as I do, and blow yourself up, please don't blame me.....I
have not yet set myself on fire or had a conflagration in my shop. ...yet
