Subject:
Curtain around lathe

RandyM
I am currently looking at ceiling mounted curtain track systems. I want to contain the chips and debris generated from turning so it is not all over everything in my shop. I have my lathe in a corner and need a curtain on 2 sides, probably 8 feet by 8 feet, with a radius corner. Conduit fashioned as a curtain rod is an option but seems would limit moving the curtain freely. I want to be able to move the curtain totally out of the way to one end. I am leaning toward a steel industrial track solution over light aluminum stuff since it is cheaper, although shipping is what kills you on all of this stuff since there are no local suppliers. I plan to hang clear shower curtains from it. I am curious what other people are doing. Anyone have a better idea?
