I don't know why my fellow FOGGERs keep falling for his sleazy antics.

people just being courteous and polite, doubt anyone is falling for anything

Regardless of anyone's intentions or lack of intentions let's keep the tone civil. Almost always more productive that way. Some good and interesting info on the testing in this topic. It's worth having.

where does one need to begin the static discharge? as noted, the tools aren't conductive... so if I was running PVC into a dustopper, could I just ground the pipe connecting the dustopper to the Festool vac? unlike Sandy's Festopper mine just lives under a bench, so it doesn't need to be portable and I have a lot more grounding options
