Re: Wet Tents


I like the concept but don't have one. Currently, I've been able to set up in a HO's garage & use 6mil on the floor.

I asked this same question about 2-3 years ago here & no one used it. I think they are on the expensive side so if it would really help increase your productivity, it might be worth it.

I certainly don't think they are a bad idea.

Re: Wet Tents


A granite setter I knew some years back had a nice set up----
He had a stainless steel pan made a bit larger than his saw and stand--it had a piece of metal welded into each inside corner.

That corner clip held a pvc pipe frame and a curtain (like a shower curtain) ran around 3 sides.

I worked a couple of winter jobs with that set-up---small torpedo heater--warm hands no frozen pump lines---slick------Mike-----Wish I had a picture,very simple.

Re: Wet Tents


yeah they work. But i think you can make one your self. I have some pictures I will try and dig up. When i do a saw inside I use a small kiddie pool and place the saw in that and then tent the unit. It works only if there is a vacant room where you can set up a work station

Re: Wet Tents


Here's my home made "wet tent". 1" pvc glued strategically, plastic mortar tubs from Lowe's, cheap painter's plastic thrown away after each job, some spring clamps and blue tape hold the plastic in place. Zero water hits the floor, but I still use a thick rubber sheet under the whole setup to protect the floor and to mix thinset on.
