Oh man. Does this mean we can use that hole to vent everything? Like, the dust collector and big laser (when it's built) too?

As far as I know, it'll work fine for whatever! We'll need to get a t joint and a bigger fan if we add too much more. Dave woods would be able to say more.

And give some thoughts to the possible impacts of "crossing the streams" - both in the combination of outputs (heat / spark + sawdust = bad) and in the possibility of backflow.

Is there anything today to keep water from entering that opening and going into the laser? I'm thinking bad wind / rain or idiot with a pressure washer...
