I put up a terrific struggle but Jenn finally convinced me to get a dust collector ;-)

Actually I’ve been looking for a while now (thus the tag line) and we finally decided to pick one up. So we picked up a General 10105CFM1 1.5 hp 1100 cfm canister top single stage collector from Wooden Edge here in Brandon.

I bought my jointer and planer from them and am very happy with both of these tools so Wooden Edge was the place to go for this purchase. I’ve not powered it up yet (I want Jenn to have the honour) so I am just waiting for her to get back from work.

Hi Mark,

This is a nice addition to your shop. It would be nice to see review of this one when you get a chance to put it into action.

Thanks for the post. And this is one tool that I am sure you will wonder how you got along without it.

that is a nice addition. it must have been hard on you to have to give in to Jenn’s wishes, LOL. dust collectors are such a great thing to have. i hate hooking up shop vacs to my tools whenever i use them I’m working on some quick connect things right now. can’t wait for a review on this one!

That’s very patient of you to wait for her. I couldn’t do it. Congratulations to your lungs.

We really like this tool. I will have to do a review now that I am back in the shop and able to actually create some dust :-)

Checked out your shop, it looks pretty good. I like the the DC as it is very quite and moves a lot of air (and sawdust). When you do go looking for one, make sure it has sufficient volume (CFM) to move the quantities of dust you are making.
