A bunch of people use just that in our campground... too much granite ledge underground to get anything in the ground.

Got the fan installed, vent thru the sidewall of the garage and all hooked up. Bead blasted 4 upper brackets and the fan does make a difference in the dust. Also keeps the heat down from the 2 flood lights in the cabinet and eliminates any dust blowing out in the garage. Should make TOWTA a little happier with less dust on her old junker.

That kind of dust usually scratches paint.

That was a real "Barn Find"! Few and far between to find.
