Well since my wife and I have moved to my new job after college graduation we are renting a house until we find the right place (and to make it right would mean it has a shop or has a place to build one…). But fortunately the house we are renting has a sunroom off the back of it about 12 by 25 ft. It has proved to be very useful as my “shop” untill something new comes along. Currently I have a 10in sliding compound miter saw, a benchtop belt sander with 6in disc sander, router table, drill press, band saw, table saw, and other various power/hand tools. I can not wait until the day I have my own nice shop with tall ceilings and a flat floor to build projects in. So far in my “shop” I have built a headboard, dresser, chest of drawers, mantle, corner cabinet, and several other things.

Welcome aboard! Nice to have you here.

Looks like a nice place, to “temporarily set up shop”. I hope the view out the wall of windows is nice.

My permanent (for the foreseeable future) shop is of similar size. I’m actually in the process of setting up my shop. I doubt it will never be done, but it is now workable.

Looks like a 2HP HF DC in the corner. If it is, you may want to consider upgrading to a cannister filter.

BTW: The fireplace mantel looks good. Can’t wait to see it posted under projects, when it’s done.

actually the “fireplace mantel” is the front face frame for a corner cabinet I built for my mom for her birthday (I can definately see how you got the mantel from it tho…lol) It turned out spectacular. I will post the picts from it under projects later.

Justin,

Good looking shop there… As far as the canister filter goes, yes the filtration on the paper and nanofiber are better than the spun bond, the spun bond is still well over 90% of the .5 micron at least according to Dick Wynn when I ordered mine… To top it off, it is much easier to clean the spun bond. And that is also the unit recommended by Bill Pentz in his work on Dust Collection…

As you are an Engineer, you might actually be able to get through reading Bills stuff (he’s another engineer) without serious brain freeze. Even for engineering documentation, Bill’s stuff goes into painful levels of detail for most, and he tends to take an all or nothing approach, but none the less his stuff is WELL worth reading…

http://billpentz.com/woodworking/cyclone/index.cfm

His specific page regarding the Cartridge Filter Conversion is HERE.

Bill tends to lean heavily toward advising a “Neutral Vane” in a single stage dust collector to improve separation, in actual testing while Neutral vanes do help, a Thien Baffle is a MUCH more efficient separator, and will keep your filter clean and flowing well longer. Phil’s web site where he discusses his separator and baffle can be found HERE.

Ditto what dbhost said!

I went with the 35A274NANO, for a few extra bucks, it seemed to make sense to me. I’m also repurposing a variable speed squirrel cage furnace blower into an air cleaner.

Edit: refering to next post. I have almost ALL the makings of the Thein Seperator! Like you, I need to find the time. I have several desperately needed shop fixtures, jigs & projects to complete.

It looks like a nice set up, especially since it’s temporary. It looks like a comfortable place to work and it’s nice to be able to have windows. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Looks to me like you are set up pretty good for a temporary shop.
