Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


hey I forgot to mention that they sell a plasic tube in 12" dia. Its really kind of neat, it is like a looong plastic bag that you can cut to whatever size. The trick is to tape off the end closed, then make slits for the air to vacate right next to the taped off end. You want the air pressure to keep the tube "inflated". They sell that in 100' leghths. I got another squirrel cage and motor but much bigger cfm than the one in pic. that I'm going to use the 12" exhaust tube for.

The link to supply house is www.midwestsalesinc.com

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I have been searching like a mad-man and can not locate the 8" flex duct or the 12" air tube. I got excited when you posted that link but it was no help either for those items? I really appreciate your help.

I had to cut a wall in a high profile computer room equipt with dust detectors. I wet the roc in the area i was going to cut and ripped it witha key hole saw with a shop vac under the blade. It worked well and fast.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Most of the dust we generate is in cutting holes for light cans and for this we use the Hole Pro adjustable hole cutters with their ABS shields. The shield catches all the dust and shavings and keeps them out of the work area but more important they keep the stuff out of my eyes, ears, armpits, and lungs.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I picked up the 21" flat duct which just fits over the mouth of the air mover. We can transfer dusty air hundreds of feet through the home the window and out into the yard (away from the house) works like a charm and it was cheap

cut a rectangle piece of cardboard and shut the window on the flat pipe / cardboard and you have a relatively air tight seal (air filled flat duct conforms to the shape) . No wasted AC and no flies

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Where can I get one of these ducts?

What air mover you're using?

Thanks.

Your HVAC guy probably
scraps furnaces with perfectly
good squirrel cage blowers
all the time.
If he won't give you one outright
you can surely buy one for
the price of a new box fan.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


If you go back through this thread I think there are some websites for air movers from various companies. Since I'm a cheapskate I built one myself as shown in the pics and described by neolitic.

Cool, thanks Jesse, Paulie, & Neolitic.

I noticed that the flat duct is poly. Is it reusable? Do you cut it down (from 500') or use as is?

As for air mover, I guess based on suggestions, I have 2 choices: one to get one of those carpet dryer blower thingy; or get one of those used furnace blower. For jobs with lead & asbestos, what do you use?

We cut it down to the size we need and when finished we roll it up and write the length on the outside with a magic marker for re-use. You will have to tape the end closed and cut a hole on top for the exhaust end to keep it from flopping all over like one of those Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men

We don't fool around with lead or asbestos but if I did I would buy one of those Hepa machines on the web site.
