After reading many favorable reviews of the Ridgid oscillating sander (model # EB44242) and with a 15% rebate offered by the manufacturer, I finally bought this sander as my Christmas present. The more I use it the more I like the sander. I would ...

I started woodworking in 2004 by purchasing my first tablesaw. In fact until then I had never operated a table saw before. I was a little scare at first.
My workshop is part of our 3 car garage. In the summer time when the cars are parked outside, I can claim the entire garage as my workshop. However, in the winter time, my wife's car reclaims the territory. Some of power tools that I have today include a Craftsman contractor tablesaw, a 14" Grizzly bandsaw, a 12 1/2" DeWalt planer, a Makita compound miter saw, a Freud router, a Delta tabletop drill and dust collection system, and an Earlex HVLP sprayer. You see I am not brand loyal!
In 2009 I added a 6" Grizzly jointer w spiralhead cutter, a Ridgid oscillating sander and upgraded my tablesaw fence to a Delta T2 30" fence.
My date job is a pharmacist and my other hobbies are water gardening and marine/reef and freshwater aquariums.

Inspired by Jeff’s (Jcoulam) homemade cyclone dust collector, I decided to make one just like his. This blog is written to show how I built it. At a local home center, I purchased one 8”x24 metal duct, a 5-ft 2” PVC pipe, ...
