« Part 6: Bandsaws Part 7 of Saturday in the Woodworking Shop series Part 8: Dehumidifying Lumber Storage »

Today I am talking about woodshop dust collection, and about how I designed and built my cyclone separator and dust collection system using guidance from Bill Pentz (BillPentz.com), piping from Spiral Mfg, and filters from Wynn Environmental.

Thanks for the video. I noticed you used Ts instead of Ys at your joiner and bandsaw, how does that affect air flow?

Yes, I did use T’s at the jointer and bandsaw, where space is limited. I don’t find it to be a problem, but the run of ducting under the floor to the cylcone is pretty short right there. Also, these T’s have a chamfered corner, so that helps.
