Updated ClearVue Mini CV06 with cone is much improved

11-21-2014 02:56 PM by Bill1974 | 3 comments »

I saw that ClearVue has updated their Mini CV06 shop vacuum separator. I called them up and asked if it would be possible to update my previous generation CV06 and they said it was possible. They sent me the parts (lower cone, a couple of gaskets and hardware) for $40 + $10 for shipping. Money well spent in the long run. The update really improves the separation to the point with almost nothing gets into the shop vac. I took apart the CV06 off the old shop vac housing that I had at...

Better when attached to the shopVac then a 5 gallon bucket

Better when attached to the shopVac then a 5 gallon bucket

I have had this not for a few month, and it is much nicer to empty this then the shop vac. I am using a Ridgid 6.5hp shop vac with this. It work well, but not as well as I thought it would. Sealing the air leaks in the container seem to help but there was nothing in the included instruction that said this. I got this in the kit form that came with a could of 5 gallon buckets, a short section of hose to connect it the shopvac (its a really nice quality), and the hardware to attach it to ...

The first picture is just after it died a small fiery death. The second pic is from lowes website, the canister is not really that tall is a more squat. Purchased this in the summer of 2008 and it lasted till September of 2013. I purchased a Ridgid WD1851 to replace it, after it died. I used it for house renovations and some dust collection. It had seen a good amount of drywall dust and concrete dust (which is what lead to its demise). The bushing (not bearing) wore and the motor shaf...

I have had this biscuit joiner the (JM82) for a few months and it has worked well. It’s easy to adjust and handle. It seem a little more powerful than a porta cable one that I had used, it get up to full speed quicker than the PC. The case is nice, but the bag location is a little awkward. It would also be nice if there were a better way to store extra biscuits in it. Additionally the cord gets bent pretty tight when put in the case, just past the strain relief on the unit, I cu...

Decent Set for occasional use

Decent Set for occasional use

05-08-2013 02:36 PM by Bill1974 | 2 comments »

I have had this set for a couple of years and used maybe a quarter of the bits. Like other have said not the best way to spend money, it’s better to buy individual or small sets of high quality bits. I realized this after buying some freud, whiteside, and amana bits. The case that the bits come in is nice and it hangs on the wall nicely and look impressive. The downside is the bits are a challenge to get out, work gloves and taking the case off the wall are generally necessary. T...

I picked up these at the local Lowes this past weekend. I needed something other then the little foam things you roll up and stick in you ear as I was going to use an medium sized electric demo hammer to chip up the porcelain floor tile in a bathroom I am redoing. Overall the sound deadening ability is very good. I would guess they would work fine in most applications. TV at a normal level is barely audible with them on. Now using an angle grinder is not so annoying.The radio reception...
