This electronically driven automatic blast gate system is an optional upgrade to the iVac Pro Wireless Dust Collection Control System, bringing one-touch simplicity to managing your dust collection airflow. Simply turn on your power tool, and the iVac Pro Tool (42891, sold separately) sends a wireless signal to automatically open the corresponding Pro Blast Gate, and another signal to the iVac Pro Switch (42897, sold separately), which turns on your dust collector. Turn off your power tool, and after a short interval to clear dust, the blast gate closes and the dust collector powers down. This automation prevents the irritating dust clouds that result from forgetting to open a blast gate, and the reduced suction that results from forgetting to close it afterward. The system also ensures that at least one gate stays open when the vacuum is on to prevent overloading the motor on your dust collector. Prevents the irritating dust clouds you get from forgetting to open the blast gateReduces the potential for accidents from reaching for blast gates while machines are runningOptimizes the suction in your system by keeping a minimum number of gates open at one timeBlast gates can also be controlled via the handheld wireless remote or manually with the toggle switchKit includes two blast gates for 4'' hose, two 115v AC adapters, a wireless remote control and a manual toggle switchUp to eight blast gates can operate on one systemAdditional blast gates available separately (52504)RF range: 40'
African Mahogany is strong, yet light, and works beautifully with hand tools. The color matures from a salmon tone when freshly cut, into a rich red or brown with age. The grain varies from straight to curly, sometimes producing highly attractive figures. Flat-sawn boards feature wavy horizontal bands. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations. Thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Texture: Fine or medium to coarse, and uniform.Luster: Highly lustrous.Movement: Mahogany is considered to be one of the most stable timbers.Durability: High durability, resistant to brown-rot and white rot fungi. Moderately resistant to dry-wood termite attack.Weathering Properties: Very good - a great choice for boat building.Planing: The wood is easy to plane, but figured grain may chip and tear.Turning: Easy - turned surfaces are usually clean.Polishing characteristics: Good.Steam Bending: Fairly good.Strength: Variable, but generally high bending strength and medium crushing strength. Hardness and weight are moderate, and density is high.
