Easy "Clean Lab"

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Mon Mar 14, 2011 3:26 pm

Not my idea, but I saw this and thought it was worth sharing. Making one of these never even crossed my mind before, but I know for sure how convenient it will be.

That's quite an different sort of glovebox, I've been thinking about making one for my "hobbies", but I hadn't thought of using a clear container.

Thanks for sharing.

Thats a pretty good idea... might put one over my bench grinder for when I grind PVC. It makes the whole entire thing turn white afterwards :D

Adding a "fume hood" blower and inlet air that sweeps the front window on the way in, the front glass can be kept clear as well as reducing the interior dust storm. Vent the fumes and dust outside.

Use rock to break glass to get hammer to break glass to get rock.

Yeah PVC dust is a pain. It's very clingy.

The PVC dust is clingy due to static electricity. Wipe down the pipe, tools, gloves, etc with a dryer sheet before beginning work. It works wonders.

I guess that's one advantage of living in near-tropical conditions during the summer. :D Certainly less of that.

I'm in Florida... the sticking to skin isn't a problem, it just covers everything around it... I use the compressor to blow off my arms every time I grind PVC.

If static is the problem just spray your surroundings with a static dispersing spray. In the US I think one brand is "Static Guard", I might be wrong though.

Salt water in a spray bottle could work but it would have to be used on a non corrodible surface.

I'd try to avoid doing that. There can be oil that air.

Some compressors are oiless. They are used in places suchs as paint booths, air brushes, and such where oil can ruin the finish. Some use oil/water seperaters.
