When I built my shop I installed 6″ pipe under the slab for my dust collection system. Wires were run with all the buried pipe to support grounding the system once up and running. It appears something happened to the wire between my planer and the dust collector as a lot of static electricity builds up when I run this machine. My question…. Can I drill a small hole into the 6″ plastic pipe and run the wire INSIDE the pipe over to the dust collector, then have the wire exit the buried pipe thru another small hole? I can then attach at each end to ground it. Just not sure if the wire running inside the pipe will affect the dust collection. I’m not concerned about the fire or explosion risk everyone raises. The grounding is more to avoid the nice shock I get when I touch the pipe. Thanks in advance.
