    Do you have a machine or do you make all of those ducts by hand? I like those Pittsburgh seams on the curves. We do ours by hand and it's a pain in the ass to bend the curved edges using an EZ edge.

    Really should have made a sheet metal base instead of using those concrete blocks - they look ghastly. Just because the homeowner provides something doesn't mean you have to use it.

    If it doesn't make a similar noise on startup then you probably have a bad motor. The EL195 has a constant torque motor so you're probably better off replacing it via warranty.
