I only have one question......... where'd ya get that vacuum hose? and how long is it?
OK, OK, two questions.
That's really nice lookin work. Random length? What brand of tape do you use? I've heard 3m blue is bad for floors. Not that it's leaves residue, but has a photo chemical reaction or some plasticizer migration issues.
OK, so now I'm up to 4 questions, so shoot me.

The hose is from dustless technologies, about 15ft.

Random length from one foot to 8ft, lot's of longer lengths

I only use 3m blue 2080 on the last rows i work on top of after strapping. I pull it immediately as soon as i hit the wall.

That's got to be 25 feet if it's an inch. I demand a remeasure.

Two questions.......
On a room that size and with that size board do you do clamps on every row, or a couple rows at a time before snugging them up?
How many clams would you have set up when doing a room that size?
That seem like a lot of clamping and adjusting while at the same time, never getting glue on the clamps or straps as you work.

High, I have about 12 clams.
Had about six going and strap after setting 5 or six rows. Then spread glue, unclamp. Repeat.
