Shop Equipment and Safety

Monday, February 15, 2016 11:22 AM | Malcolm Shore

I raised the subject of shop cleanliness and safety at the last meeting, and I am suggesting that we consider installing a central dust collector for the machinery, with floor sweeps for general clean-up. The members would install. I recently purchased a reasonable unit for my own shop for around $200 (not installed yet) from Harbor Freight, so that plus duct etc should be of ok cost, say <$1000 for a clean shop.

Also with regard to safety, some equipment have open hazards which need to be addressed. 1st to prevent injury and 2nd to limit liability. 

If any member would like to second this as a proposal for discussion at the next meeting, please do. 

And if any member should disagree, well let that be known also.

Thanks
