    I only have one question......... where'd ya get that vacuum hose? and how long is it?
    OK, OK, two questions. :D
    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. :D

    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....... :D
    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.
