New guy stopping in

Hello all,

I wandered in (Google) to read some threads about dust collection. I am setting up a new DC system as I recently moved and left my old DC plumbed and in place at my old shop for two of my boys to use. I am an old Journeyman with about 30 years of kicking around shops and the building trades under my belt. Carpentry, steel (welding and fabrication), plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting and concrete to name some of the trades I have made a living at. I am more of an all around Tradesman then a Master at any craft. My new shop has the usual equipment, a table saw is probably the mainstay along with a miter box, a band saw, router (s) and table, drill press, compressor and the usual power and hand tools. Plus assorted metal working and mechanical tools. This looks to be a fun place to hang out and I look forward to my stay here.

Welcome Nick, looking forward to picking your brain along with all the other brainiac's we have here.
I'm in need of as much knowledge as I can absorb, new knowledge & more experts are always welcome.

Welcome aboard Nick. There's plenty of knowledge here to get you into trouble, but beware of the milling and forestry section. Reading it too much will pull at your pocketbook if you love wood like I do.
