Just be sure to put a board under the rubber and cut through both.

Ha. That's great. Btw do you have fest saw or Maki? They have rail adjust knobs you don't need tape.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Souped up my vacuum

Put a K&N filter on it along with a 50' cord. Musta added 10 HP



Ya, you're all asking why, aren't you.

Air in equals air out. 130 CFM in is 130 CFM out. A pretty powerful stream of air comes out the opposite side of the vacuum when it's operating. Blows the dust around, the dust I'm trying to collect. Looked for a filter with 1 1/4" opening and this fit the ticket. It doesn't restrict air flow that much, maybe a couple 10ths of a percent, if that. And the stream of air is dissipated extremely well.

You should paint it red while you're at it. Make it suck even faster that way.
