Re: Ducting, wye's, 90's & blast gates
I have spent half a day trying to find a dealer for the Xtreem Self Amalgamating tape here in Canada to no luck. So choose plan B.
The cyclone has an 8" port coming off the unit, that mates to a metal split Y duct. I then have a metal 8" to 6" step down cone on each end of the Y. The 6" pvc pipe is slightly larger than the flange coming off the step down cone, and I need some good way to seal that connection.
From the Clearvue website, they talk about sealing the unit with silicon. But we all know that silicon is an awful product to have in the shop and I'd rather stay clear of it if I need to. Would any other indoor/outdoor mastic work to fill the small gap. I could then wrap it with aluminium duct tape.
People are like a box of chocolates. It's hard to tell initially which ones are nuts.
