You know, if the stranded wire broke, maybe I'll hang a little metal chain down the inside of the DC hose. Even if it's not copper, I'll bet the resistance of some dust coated steel jack chain is...

How do you vent your spraybooth, Jim. I hate moving everything outside and have been considering a mobile inside hood that vents to the outside via some 4" flex through smaller DC. My mini gun only...

That's an interesting system. Makes a lot of sense if your DC control is not central to your machines. My shop is so small I don't even use the remote.

Impressive specs on that one Doug. Makes my 5hp SDG look like a window fan.

What is the laminate you made it out of called, and what kind of glue is that? Is it an epoxy that's colored?
