Dust collector bag to barrel/drum options/recommendations - 4 replies

I have a Delta 50-767 dust collector and it works fine. The hassel is emptying and replacing the bag. I know down the road I would prefer to have seperator on the inlet but thought it would be easier and quicker to just find a barrel or drum that I could use in place of the bag. I believe the 50-767 is similar to the 50-760 if not the same...

Break box is pretty much full and it’s a rats nest from the previous electricians and home owners, so I don’t want to mess with it right now. Eventually I will just replace the panel with something wire more space. In my garage I have 40 amp 240 line (8-3 wire, 3 conductors and a ground) for an air compressor. The compressor isn...

Airless handheld or HVLP (compressor not turbine) - 0 replies

I have never sprayed stains, dyes, or top coats. I have airbrushed a little and used an airless to spray latex. I have a tv stand that I made with maple, but would like to have a dark espresso finish. Yeah I know not the ideal choice, but it was what was easily available at the time to get. I have a General Finishes dye stain and clear t...

Question on dust collection when using a separator - 1 reply

I think this questions applies more to a shop vac and separator than a dust collector, but it may apply to both. Would it make sense to put a relief valve in between the point of dust collection and the separator? The reason I ask is that more separators rely on the velocity and centrifugal forces to separate the dust from the air. Most of ...
