    Unless you can hermetically seal the table from the outside world, it would have virtually no effect. It's better to just expect it to breath and adjust accordingly. You could switch to a different...

    I've used the indexer as a hold down on a bunch of other projects. Mostly, for "drilling" a hole down the center of a piece.

    Shipping is likely to run about $400-$600 depending on if you need a liftgate or not. The owner would also have to palletize the blower, not an easy thing if you don't do it every day.
