Thats amazing on how it takes the dust out. I am thinking just about anyone can add a small entryway to whatever opening, put in a mister and piece of carpet to remove shoes, and you have a dust-free environment for the entire event.

Hey Falk,

Cool space!

Already looking forward to BM06 and wondering where you found to be the best place to source your EMT in the bay area?

Thanks.

Home Depot had the best prices I could find anywhere. I managed to catch them during a 10% off sale. There may be a wholesaler out there somewhere with better prices, but I could never find one.

Current going rate for 3/4" EMT is $5/10' length.

Steel prices are currently very high, with no end in sight.

Back when I was thinking about doing a do-it-yourself shade structure, I looked into buying salvage conduit and I found some at a metal salvage place. Just a thought if anyone is thinking about doing anything with conduit.

p.s. NICE DOME! <envy>
