    Is there any difference in end output if you're using an inline fan to pull air, (vacuum) instead of pushing the air (Blower) when you using closed hoods. I was told by a shop owner that the output is severely reduced when pulling the air through hoods but he couldn't explain it convincingly...

    I put most of the UC together today.

    It's a simple enough concept but it kicks your ass doing it. I bought KY jelly and yes it helps. Those rubber seals are so tight when you're trying to jam the PVC into it.

    Waiting patiently, UC is in route.
