    I use it it for welding fumes, plus my home made paint booth.

    Anyway the vents are insulated, because i live in Wi. But I also use an air conditioner once in a while in the summer.

    This is on the first five pages of this,http://www.1969supersport.com/paintroom.html the pictures are scattered around a little, but you can see the insulated vents. Anyway, for whats it worth.

    Wow! Obviously, you do not suffer from ADD, like some of us. Am very envious of your organizational skills, and sure do appreciate that you took the time to document and post some of your accomplishments. Nice work!
    Goodhand

      Rob, and everyone else...

      Rather than using angle bolted to the ceiling, you should use electrical strut instead.

      This stuff is super strong, and comes with slots for easy installation on standard spaced studs. HD has it in stock for about 13 bucks for a 10'er.

      The rolled edges are made for a plethora of standard brackets and nuts, but can also work to hook your wire hangers on as well.

        Here's a shot of the bandsaw cart I designed and tigged together to replace the backbreakingly low legs the saw came with from the manufacturer. It can be disassembled into three pieces (apart from the saw) for saw storage or transport. The casters are bolted on (not welded) for easy replacement.

            Good idea, I never thought about using it.

              I never thought of it either, till my dad pulled a whole mess of it out of a church when they re-did their projectors. Having some 20 odd 10' lengths of it in his garage, I realized it could be used to augment the hooks I had been hanging on the overhead garage door frame.

              I never did install any in his garage, but my paint booth will have several sections of it attached to the ceiling.

                I've just added the parts for that to my home depot shopping list. I'll be making one right after my next trip. those discs aren't cheap.

                    "This is a comparison of the size of a disc that is worn down to the original roloc
                    holder and you can see how much smaller this one is."


                    Maybe I'm missing something -
                    Is there a reason you just didn't trim down the original roloc holder - it seems like you could cut the face back to the same size as the new one you made ?

                      Sorry. As small as it gets. It was a small welding job and didn't take long to complete. Just took a while to get to area.

                        My first gig all, my MM180 worked flawlessly. course, to get my mig working properly at home took some great advice from the guys here. thanks to those for their advice

                        A bit shy to post these pics at first due to the caliber of projects posted on this excellent thread. the chevelles are my personal favorite can't wait to post B4 and after pics of my 66 malibu Floor pans project,( which due to work Around the Home) is on hold for now

                          I'm not sure how far back you could trim the roloc disc pad holder, but you have a good point Chuck.

                          I just went out and measured the holder, the metal inside the holder looks to be about 5/8'' diameter.

                          The way its built leads me to believe that if you trim it down to the metal, it might fly apart, but I'm not sure.

                          The nut I used could be safely ground to 5/8'' or maybe even smaller then that.

                          Maybe somebody on here could grind down a roloc disc pad holder, but use some caution, like safety googles and a face mask, in case it flies apart.

                          Its hard to tell if it will fly apart, or when it might decide to let go, I don't have a clue on that.

                          But I know the nut welded on the rod I used won't fly apart.

                          So, maybe somebody could do some tests, just be safe.

                          I have used the little homemade holder a couple of times.

                          On the floor pans of my 69 chevelle. Where the floor pans are plug welded to the floor support, I want a nice clean edge, and that lip along the floor pan support varies from 3/4'' to 1 1/4'' wide, so I can get in there and stay off the edge of the floor support with the little disc.

                          I also used it on the rocker panels where the narrow part of it is.

                          Anyway, I hope I explained this okay, anybody else got any ideas, nows a good time to sort this out.

                          Rob
