I think everyone should have a few SharkBite fittings in their plumbing box; they can come to your rescue in the right situation.

http://www.cashacme.com/prod_sharkbite.php

A few weeks ago I had a zone valve fail, and I had to cut into the system to sweat in a new zone valve. I closed the isolation valves (old gate valves), and cut the zone valve out. I then discovered the old gates valves were leaking by, and the water wouldn't stop dripping. I couldn't sweat the connection with the dribble of water coming out of the pipes, and with the subzero temperature outside, I didn't want to drain the entire boiler. I had two SharkBite shutoffs on hand, so I sweated some copper stubs on the zone valve and installed it with the SharkBite fittings. The heat is back on, and I'm grateful that I had those fittings on hand.

Has anyone used an Oneida Dust Deputy Cyclone System? I looks like it would be a good item for cleaning up our favorite dust, no reds of course. ;) If one of these were placed in-line with a shop vac equipped with a dry wall dust filter and a HEPA exit filter, darn near nothing should get by. I'm thinking about getting one but I'm hoping for someone that's used one to chime in.

Edit: They do make a Delux model that is welded steel.

I don't have one. Wish I did. The wood working magazines have done reviews on them. I think it was Fine Woodworking.

Their web site has a blog. I'd post the question there.

Yanche,

I do have one, the Delux welded steel model, it works great. I use it to clean up what the ash pans miss on my Channing III and the Harman MkIII, I even used it to clean out my fireplace ash pit which had 29 years worth of fine wood ash and coal clinkers and it did a great job. It fill it full about 12 times and only shook out the vac filter twice. Even if it did suck up a hot ember I doubt it would make it too the shop vac.

In a time when few things work as well as advertised this does.
