Just bustin'... I think you can edit a post up to like an hour or so using the edit button (see below - don't know the exact cut-off), but then the button disappears and after that you'd have to ask a mod to change it...

I totally disagree with you on this.
I have and use all three of these products.

For running plastic sheeting there is NOTHING faster and easier than zip poles.

The weight factor is huge when you are carrying over 10 poles into a project. Zip poles are the clear winner.
If you do a lot of plastic walls using these are the best choice
I have 2 sets of 10 poles.

3dr hand dust doors are the BOMB and for them to work you need 3 rd hand poles or a modification to the harbor freight poles.

For over all versatility Is the clear winner
It is strong enough to dead man drywall,
and stable enough to use as a laser stand.

I think the first 2 poles a contractor shold buy are a pair of these.

The harbor freight poles are cheap they are perfect for a good second string, I have 14 of them that I bring out on large projects or a second jobsite.

For the most part they suck for laser poles and I would not trust them for heavy over head support. you can use the FastCap plastic sheeting head on the harbor freight(you can use most 3rd hand accessories on the HF stuff.

I saw that too. I didn't look close enough to see what it was.

Hi, check out The Dust Cobra by Oneida. Its HEPA and apparently pretty powerful. Oneida is a good brand.

For the sake of honesty, I'm a brand ambassador for Oneida, but I really stand by their products and have used their dust deputy for ages.

Frog tapes definitely better, also costs more. I try not to leave it down too long. Change every couple days or once a week.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Best way is to control the dust at the source. Always keep a vacuum on with cutting, sanding or grinding. Invest in either a HEPA dust extractor like the Dewalt one I just got myself as a early Christmas gift or use HEPA filters like Cleanstream in a regular Ridgid shopvac (which I did for years).

Have a helper hold the sucker where you are grinding/cutting/sanding or tape the hose to your tool. It won't catch all the dust, but it will get 99% of the really fine stuff that is the real problem. The stuff that it won't suck up on the spot are too heavy and falls straight to the ground. You can clean those up after. Zip walls are fine and good, but if you don't control the dust at the source, you'll just end up with a really dusty containment.
