Default Who gets sawdust on the carpet?

Well as an apartment dweller, I am severly guilty of this. Luckily I have a back room near the the back door that I can go in and out of easily. I use some stuff (like scroll saw and the hole saws) outside, because of the excessive saw dust and the loud noise....

The wife is fairly understandable.

Good vacuums and extra bags need apply

Hard core DIY, I love it ! Nice work too. I own a garden home, so I dont have a garage, but have a second story deck that makes for a nice covered porch to work under. Clean-up is just a sweep, but as I live in a resort-type area, where there are alot of retirees, it tends to **** them off when I'm running the saw as the sun as going down .

WA is not a Factor - yet.

Here is one indoor project that will make you laugh:

Boy those pics remind me of my apartment living too! My last rental place before I finally bought a real house had the living room set up as an electronics lab and a school bus outside was my machine shop. I am now extremely fortunate to have a 3500 sq.ft. commercial workshop building on my property next to my house. Even so, my house still looks like a shop. My kitchen table is an audio workbench more often than a kitchen table.

Sanford1, is that Bill Wysock's Tesla coil in your avatar? I've built a few big 'uns myself. Shut down my Hi Voltage Lab a few years ago because I survived from electrocuting myself long enough and didn't want to push it. I took up DIY audio instead.

Those speakers look good!

FYI, here's one of my coils in action. It isn't completely off topic. It isn't a speaker, but dang it certainly was loud.

My SOH said either the DIY hi-fi had to go or she would.

This is a picture of her 'new' bedroom.

As someone who makes his living making messes in other people's homes, let me pass this on.

The heavy-duty dropcloths found in home centers are a wise investment whatever the price, and the 8' x 12' is easy to launder.

To reply with RCAvictim;

Notice the person at the bottom of the coil.

As far as the speaker go, they do what I want and now my limits are what's driving them. A lot of folks don't think that the planars will integrate with the woofers without building dipole woofers or another line source but they fail to consider the wavelengths involved at a 200Hz crossover. Everything is getting pretty much omni directional at around that xover frequency so it's better than most Stereophile readers think.

"Notice the person at the bottom of the coil."

I saw that. Yes this is a 'big' magnifier of quite some reputation in coiling circles. Didn't know you were also into audio.

"As far as the speaker go, they do what I want and now my limits are what's driving them. A lot of folks don't think that the planars will integrate with the woofers without building dipole woofers or another line source but they fail to consider the wavelengths involved at a 200Hz crossover. "

I'm relying on the 200Hz 'fact' right now in my latest speaker creation. Hope to have first sound testing within a week or so.

" Everything is getting pretty much omni directional at around that xover frequency so it's better than most Stereophile readers think . "

With respect to those to whom this observation does NOT apply..."Scientific American readers think.
