and it's usually when you least expect it. Many times it is because of an operator error of some kind like a wadded up finishing rag or some stray sparks from a grinding sharpening session. SO, the most important tool in any shop is the grey stuff in the skull. Another prime tool for when stuff does happen is a fire extinguisher. As a reminder, I hope, check for the current date on the extinguisher you have now and rely on OR ........GET an extinguisher ASAP. You have many hundreds of dollars invested in tool, supplies and real property. A good extinguisher that only costs a few dollars can be a real cost effective investment. Once you have one, make sure that the effective date still makes it valid. An inventory, lots of pictures, a good egress plan would help if all else fails.

This post is probably as boring as watching grass grow or paint drying, I agree, nonetheless, the stuff that CAN happen could be life changing.

"PVC piping shall not be used as a component of a dust collection system"

I thought that was interesting.

As a Heating and Air guy I never under stood using PVC for ducting any way.
