Beware, the reviews warn you to treat them gently as they are prone to breaking if you try to torque on the handle. For the money, if you baby them a bit, it looks like they'd be a nice deal. I've also read reviews from guys using them to hang upper cabinets, ceiling drywall and other heavy stuff without issue. Even the people that had them break seemed pretty chill about just ordering some new ones since they weren't expensive to begin with.

Side note: Apparently they go on sale for $10 a piece sometimes.
I had them, used them a few times and tossed them in favor of Zip Wall.

My advice is to make the poles more non slip. The hard rubber they use allows the poles to slip out easy, Kids can knock them over in no time.

Also, when you extend the pole out, it clicks into a detent and then you tighten down a knob. After that you start using the caulk gun type lever/rod to extend it the rest of the way and "lock it down". But that first extention has a tendency to pop out of detent, again causing the pole to fall. You can fix this by extending it and then driving a small sheel metal screw into it.

Overall for $140, you can get a Zip Wall set-up that blows the doors off HF. I now have 2 sets of Zip-Wall

With or without kids i would never use marble! i agree 1000% . Quartz is so good - and the new patterns they are coming out with are fantastic. Not sure about the pricing or quality of the new brands that are coming out. anyone ever try them? i always use ceasar stone or cambria

Build a box to hold a furnace filter (whatever size you want. I made mine to hold a 16x20.)

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I was very concerned about lead dust when renovating a customers' older home that had traces of lead paint. In addition to the much discussed and suggested zipwall system, I would highly recommend purchasing a lead ready kit from Builders Site Protection. http://buildsitepro.com Not only did it have a lead testing kit, but many items I needed to control dust and to protect me as well. I did have to purchase plastic, tape and the zipwall system separately but they carry everything and will match pricing. You should also use a negative air scrubber to keep dust from blowing outside your plastic enclosure. Purchase extra primary and secondary filters as they are cheap. The Hepa filters are pricey so you want to keep those clean as long as possible by regularly changing the less expensive filters! I found this out the hard way.

You can use industrial dividers to section off areas. Floor sweep, anchor straps with d-rings, and custom grommets will allow you to attach to pretty much anything. Our company uses an industrial grade, fire retardant vinyl... and since it is pretty durable, you can re-use it in other areas and job sites.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


u know I am surprised that know one has mentioned the fast cap third hand it is like the harbor freight idea only 100 times better when I was looking for a dust barrier I looked at zip wall and the third hand and decided that zip wall seemed a little cheap? or flimsy? don't get me wrong I still see where I could and would use it just the third hand is also a bit more versatile and has a real nice door system for extended set up and use but for quick jobs zip wall would be fine

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Dust Free remodeling? Ha. That's like too much fun. Ain't know such thing.

People will forgive some dust, but they won't forgive not caring or not trying.

And being clean matters, especially to women , who are normally clean, and have to clean the house you are ripping apart.

Zipwalls aren't a good value ...get the harbor freight blue poles, 3 mil 10x25 plastic from wal mart and take the savings and buy fastcaps ' dust door its really impressive and works.

My favorite trick is 1/8 hardboard , basically Masonite , from Home Depot ...it really , really protects floors and can be used over and over .

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


The blue poles from harbor freight crush the small diameter pokes from zip wall.

I found that at on this site, on the "harbor freight tools you actually use" thread.

The only better pole is fastcaps 3rd hand, and it's almost overkill it's so well made .

I always supply the dust for free. People like getting things they're/there/their not charged for.

Truly the dust is free...

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I will say this....we all think we know a lot, and we do...and like to get on here and sound smart....but you can also get on here and learn, save time, and money.

Someone posted they buy blue poles at harbor freight , and I 've seen what happens to things that I set up and leave, like poles, so I went and took a look....and thought , wow, these are great ...harbor freight, hmmm, who would of thought?

I have no problem hauling a festool tracksaw, domino, of1400 ,an rotex in the same trailer with harbor freight blue poles.

Also, I want put a $20-25 hour finish carpenter on a $12 an hour demo. Make the cost fit the project, spend where it matters and save where you can.
