Quite a few years ago there was a push to have a ground wire inside the ductwork to avoid a static electric charge from building up and causing the end of the world as we know it, so I dutifully installed the ground. A friend told me they (whoever THEY are) no longer feel this is needed. Was he right?
Dust collectors and dust filters are two different things. Collectors leave a lot of fine dust in the air. Fine dust is much worse on the lungs than that collected in collectors. See my article about dust filters.
If I have an in-ground dust collection system built in my new shop similar to the one on page 50 of the 2010 issue of America's Best Home Workshops, how do you clean out the duct system of it gets plugged by something?
