I know there has been a lot of discussions on a lot of forums about grounding you PVC ducting (if that's what you use) for you dust collection systems.  I do and I have never had a problem except right by my DeWalt 735 planer and I think that mostly has to do with the fan that blows chips out of the planer at a pretty high velocity.   The couple of times it has happened, the shock was about what you get off of new carpet.

I ran across this video today and found it interesting.  The guy is a hobbyist woodwork but an electrician by trade and he did a video on grounding or earthing as they call it where he lives.  His accent is a bit thick sometimes but worth the watch.

I don’t question his ability as an electrician as he seems quiet versed. I am however amazed that his 5-6 gallon shop vac is used as his dust collection system and is hard piped throughout his shop.

It's not a shop vac.  The one other video I watch of his was his shop tour and it sounds like an interesting collector.  I think he said it had two motors and can run it on just one or use both.  I want to go back and look through his videos because if I read him right he has a video of the system when he set it up.
