    Sep 26, 2000 Michael Dresdner: Yes, you can. In my own plastic system in a shop in Pennsylvania, I used copper wire inside attached to the grounded tool at one end and the grounded dust collector at the other.

    How to properly ground dust collection system?

    Listen to this right here. Even grounding PVC is a waste of time, because the static is localized. You'd have to ground almost every square inch of the pipe to have any real effect. You aren't moving the volume of air nor dust in a home shop to have an explosion

When I was doing sheetrock in the old house I renovated, I commonly used my ShopVac attached to my 5 ROS and would wrap the 2 1/2 dust collection pipe over my shoulder. Quite a few times, I shocked the hell outta myself
