Re: Three great finishing tips

Seems like whole lot of sass about another man's dovetails...

I like the glove tip though, never done it quite like that.


Re: Dust Revisited

I do love those homemade blast gates though.

Re: Dust Revisited

I was under the impression, from what I've heard and read recently, that the fire/explosion hazard from static buildup isn't actually an issue. I could be wrong of course and would like to see some data on either side.

Anecdotally, the only fire I've ever witnessed in a DC system was caused by a small clump of shavings hung ON a copper wire inside the duct. Someone hit a nail on a machine directly under the connection and the spark immediately ignited the shavings. One more reason to have a charged extinguisher handy.
