    When I need to blow my nose out in the shop, I do it into my shop vac. :confused: That is all.

    Haven't installed a shop urinal yet. That will be after I have bought a house and set up shop there.

    Cups work for guys.....

    Why on earth would you blow your nose into a shop vac? If so, I hope you rinse it out from time to time.

    Hopefully it's a wet/dry unit.

    In case it needs to be stated explicit: I go inside and to the bathroom.

    I’v got a couple uses for a shop vac that may not be apparent.
    I had a tree go down that took out my main water line during a downpour. When I drug out the tree I was left with a huge hole full of water, that was continually filling up with rain water.
    I got my big shop vac out, stuck the vac hose in the hole, opened up the drain plug and used it like a siphon pump. Water sucked out of hole, into container and right out drain.
    Also, if you have to dig fence posts in sand, where the sides of hole are caving in, use shop vac to keep sand out. You may need a long cord or generator.

    Shop vacs are definitely fantastic and versatile tools. I don't usually have occasion to use mine except in the more orthodox ways.

    By the way, those must have been some powerful drugs to disintegrate your whole tree! Think of how tired you would be if that weren't the case and you dragged it out of there instead.
