I live in the California desert and the summers can be brutal. It is so bad that I can only work in the shop (garage) between 3-8 AM and it’s still warmer than I like.

I tried a portable evaporative cooler but because of the induced moisture, was worried about rust on my tools and the moisture content of my wood so I quit using it.

I recently heard about 2nd generation evap. cooling where moisture is NOT introduced into the air and was wondering if anyone has any experiance with it and if it is worth while checking into.

Thank you in advance,

Ok, you need to find a website to help you with this. there are a lot of good places to find a swamp cooler.That is what they call your system, a swamp cooler. The amount of humidity that goes into the shop should have no effect on your wood, just you. look here.

I think the evaporators would not do that much damage to your metals, unless you have radiators in there. It might be a problem if they rusted. Try providing shade near the entrance to your workshop?

I don’t think the evaporative cooler would hurt a thing. I have a friend that has a small machine shop. He uses a cooler and sets it on a piece of 3/4 plywood that has casters on the bottom so he can roll it where he is working. he points it at his engine lathe and goes to work. He has no rust problems. Granted a machine shop has oil on the tools but not that much. Most things are water soluble. I have used on a little but in a dry climate it shouldn’t matter much. If the humidity is down around 10% or less you should be okay.
