Oneida Super Dust Gorilla #2: Performance Testing

07-30-2016 10:35 PM by Redoak49 | 2 comments »

Several months ago, I purchased the Super Dust Gorilla 5 HP from Oneida. The specifications on the Super Dust Gorilla were • 5 HP US made Baldor motor – 19.5 Amps• Backward Inclined Cast Aluminum Impeller – 15”• Max Performance 1860 CFM at 2.5” SP• 8” Inlet• HEPA MERV 16+ Filter• Filter 110 sq. ft Given my new dust collector, I wanted to see how well it really performed compared to the Oneida performance curve. I used a great set of tools loaned to me from another...

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla #1: Assembly

07-29-2016 04:48 PM by Redoak49 | 1 comment »

Several months ago, I purchased a new dust collector. Before, I had a Jet 1.5 HP dust collector with a cartridge filter and vortex cone. It did an OK job and was piped into my shop with 4” PVC. My measurements of the flow at the dust collector were 670 CFM at the 6” port and only 450 CFM at the 4” port with a maximum static pressure was 10.25”. I wanted to get a cyclone style and looked at the ClearVue and the Oneida. While ClearVue makes a very good cyclone, they do not provide a comp...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1752: Little Boxes

07-29-2016 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday I was away on an 'adventure'.  For most people, it wouldn't be what they considered 'exciting' but for me it was a nice day. Keith's mom had her knee reconstructed this past April. Everything went well and she is doing better than ever on it. However, she still has one more procedure to have done on her other knee. That will be done in the upcoming months. Yesterday was a 'girl's day' in which we traveled up the valley to New Minas,...

Moving to Texas #1: The beginning

07-28-2016 10:38 PM by jburklow | 0 comments »

Hello, My wife and I are getting ready to move down to Texas and it is a very daunting task every time I look at my shop. It is going to be a huge undertaking to get all the machines prepared for moving. While we will have movers I will still have to break down the machines the some degree so they can be transported. I am wondering if there are folks out there who are or have been in a similar situation and if they have any advice. One of the biggest issues I will have is that since there are...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1751: On the Sixth Day of Christmas . . .

07-27-2016 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As most of you are going through probably the hottest time of the year, I am here in Nova Scotia humming Christmas carols to myself and working on Christmas ornaments. Things are going just as I planned. Many of you know that I have been working on a year-long project of creating no less than six sets of Lynne Andrew's "12 Days of Christmas" ornaments (you can purchase the pattern book here: Christmas Blessings Pattern Book – or come and join our Facebook page dedicat...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1750: Making Do

07-25-2016 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Having limited means can completely shut some people down. For others, it serves as a challenge – not only to meet, but often to be completely conquered. For them, having less doesn't mean giving up, but trying harder and often coming out of the situation even better than expected. It can be surprising what one can accomplish with a bit of determination. I grew up with limited means. My parents were divorced when I was very young (at a time when 'divorce' was neither co...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1749: Longing for 'Routine'

07-22-2016 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been over three weeks now since we made our 'final move' to our new home. In reality, it is closer to four. I look back and consider 'moving day' as the day we finally brought the cats here to our new home and began sleeping here, after our bed arrived. One would think that we would be all settled by now. Anyone who knows both Keith and I know how much we love to be organized. While he and I have many differences in the way we do things, one thing that we really se...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1748: Settling In

07-20-2016 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As I sit here this morning, trying to decide what to write, I realize how much we have accomplished in the past several weeks. I hope that I am not being tiresome talking about our moving adventures, but for Keith, the kitties and myself, it has been a life consuming event for the past several months. Not only from the day nearly three weeks ago when we finally brought the cats (and the coffee pot) to our new place here, but it has been on our minds for many, many weeks before that. We had fi...

Norfolk Island Woodworker Darren Bates

07-19-2016 04:43 AM by Grumpy | 4 comments »

Mrs Grumpy and I visited Norfolk Island last week. The beautiful scenery of Norfolk Island is something to explore and enjoy.The amazing history from having long gone evidence of Polynesian habitation then a British penal colony to finding a home for the “Mutiny of the Bounty” descendants. In 1856 the descendants of the mutineers were resettled by the British from Pitcairn Island (SE of Tahiti) some 3,400 nautical miles to Norfolk Island to the West (800 odd N.Miles off the East c...
