    Hey Mike, I plan on using the same air distribution system. How easy is the tubing to straighten without the straightener that you have? I'm sure that device makes it straight as an arrow, but I'm not sure I'll be using anything but a flat work surface and some elbow grease.

    It looks awesome installed. Your slatwall turned out good too.

    I did it without the straightener. My installation is not perfectly straight, but it works well enough.

    Edited to add a picture of where it turns the corner from along the wall to along the bottom of a joist.

    I was more than $550 into those maxline kits with another $200 planned. $130 for that straightner is absurd but I have a billion hours to go on walls and I needed my air lines up to move on so I rationalized it. Honestly it is a very annoying process to putz around with that line and I would not be happy if it looked sloppy. I have enough sloppyiness going on already lol. I will take some calipers to mine and then you can go get 7 plumbing test plugs from home depot and mount them on a board at the correct spacing and make the same thing for about $30 I bet. Guessing that will get you good enough. Ill start a new thread on that for everyone.

    This week was get south wall air lines in place so I could finish off south east corner and get the dust collector back in place, main nordfab line connected up, and get the cyclone's casters up on the legs and off the wheels. I also got the 6" drop for the chopsaw area in place, got the Steelcase credenza lateral file cabinets in place that is the start of a chopsaw station, got the electronics binder bin up, receiver and theater speaker wiring labeled and wired and connected, get the network in there and online, and got the tv mount and tv up i use as an av monitor. Those lateral file credenza cabinets came from my local habitat for humanity restore store.

    Plan is to hang up some binder bins bought from work ( got a ton of them) this weekend and get those six pallets off the floor as well. Need to cut the cube wall brackets off the bins and screw on some slat wall cleats. May break out the plasma and try and zip off the just to try it.

    Here pics of dc back in place and the start of the chopsaw area.

    Wow, those Steelcase units are really nice for your application! I actually have a few things to drop off at the Restore and am wondering what I'll discover there available to acquire! (never been there since they opened a couple years ago)

    13800 Volts. I know there are a lot of electrical requirements in your shop space. But that is a lot of sparkers.

    Your install looks good Charles. I'll probably skip the straightener or build some sort of jig myself. Thanks for the pics.
