Greetings, from 1 of the 5
Hi, you guys should look into waste oil heaters for your shops if its possible. Old orchard smudge pots work really well if you run 8" ducting at around a 55 degree angle off the top for a length of 6 to 8ft. then up (creating proper draft insures complete burn up of all carbon) and out the ceiling or thru the wall and then a vertical run of about two feet or so, top it off w/ a vent cap. Just MAKE SURE there's NO water in the oil and have a catch basin around smudge pot.
I love this podcast!
This podcast is great. It's very informative and entertaining. You guys have inspired me to return to what i love, machining! Thank you guys for the time and effort you put into making this.
Love the show. It great to put on and listen when I'm working in the shop. Most of us work by our selves and its this pod cast makes you feel like you are chatting with geeky machine shop friends just like yourself!
