I ordered, some time back, a kit from R, and some flexible hose from WC for a 2.5” system
since mine is powered by a shop vac
with a dust deputy and a grease barrel filtering out the stuff the shopvac doesnt like
Lets start with my Table Saw, since its where the system is centered.
The panel I made and mentioned in last blog entry fell off and was always a temporary thing anyway.
so i made one out of 3/8 recycled plywood, drilled and installed with screws ( another temporary fix till i get my hands on some rare-earth magnets.)
Did notice that i need to cut a bit more recess at the top above the belt, will fix later as a rarely raise it high enough to matter. will have to take off when i do any angle cuts, but i rarely do that at the moment either.
I got some foam shoved into all the crevices under the top and around the front of the saw. Its as sealed as i can get it.
I got around to making a setup to connect to the ramp and compartment under the saw
made a bracket that screws to the back that holds everything rigid
one 2”->2.5” rubber plumbing fitting ( by the way that size is perfect to conect to the dust deputy) connected to blast gate connected to T from kit, flexible hose from T to Dust deputy and to the hose i drag around shop to suck up everything.
the pipe fits perfectly in the little space left when attempting to connect walls with the addon.
upper portion runs across to what i think will be a ,what i think is called a floor sweep?, and a connection for a small 1.5” hose connection
but it is currently under construction due to running out of pipe and fittings. ( all the PVC pipe was from house i dismantled had a couple street 90s sitting around.
my todo list..( part of it anyway!)
btw none of the fittings are glued or connected other than by friction, except for the T at the DD, it was already there, i just made use of it for that connection.
more to come at a later date
a panoramic view of the shop is over HERE! showing off a few projects i hope to get posted at some point.
until next time
