I was informed that the Republic Blower that provides holddown vacuum for the table was making a loud noise indicative of failure. I came in to inspect and found it to still to be functional, but unknown if some internal damage occurred. The inlet filter was absolutely plugged. This has happened over the course of 2 weeks which is very abnormal. I know some members have been using the Multicam without the dust shoe attached and these and others have left the table very dirty. The debris on the table top can be sucked down into the vacuum system and is one way to cause the type of pluggage observed.
In addition, the double sided tape for the zone boards is beginning to come loose. It would be a very good idea for these to be retaped since the zone boards still have usable life remaining. The Fastcap tape in the brown cabinet is provided for this purpose.
So, in summary:
Use the dust shoe.
Keep the tabletop clean
Retape the zone boards.
Since the Multicam SIG is disbanded, Woodshop and Multicam users should implement some system of inspection as well as counseling for users to avoid the conditions that existed.
