TS outfeed table with downdraft #1: The Nutty Professor is at it again

05-21-2013 01:24 AM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

This view shows the back side of my recently refurbished TS. There are ~46” between the saw and my primary work bench. I lowered the bench to match the height of the TS @ 32-7/8” and planned to bridge the two with an outfeed table…. but I wanted to do something different with it. Since I have two 4” DC lines running back there, I figured this would be a great place for a down draft table. Here’s the preliminary design… To maximize air flo...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #2: Dust collection for my current setup

04-14-2013 07:38 PM by djg | 2 comments »

Now that my thoughts have been put on paper, I figured that it would be useful for others to see my current workstations setup and some details on the design. The design was taken from an old shopnotes issue. I had to make some modifications to the dimension to accomodate the saw but for the most part the workstation is similar. However, rather than a router table in the right wing, I decided to put a downdraft table. The table saw has quite a bit of storage for storing blades, accessor...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #1: Initial thoughts

04-13-2013 12:21 AM by djg | 1 comment »

About a year ago, I modified my ridgid contractor saw to a workstation setup with lots of storage and some other features like a down draft table and integrated dust collection. I didn’t want to spend a whole lot extra at the time to tackle the dust collection above the table so I modified the stock blade guard and hooked up a 2.5” hose to a vacuum which is plugged into a tool actuated power switch. Air is pulled through an overarm type setup that can fold down behind the saw wh...

Saw dust removal system project #1: Saw dust removal project

12-27-2012 06:04 PM by Fridgecritter | 5 comments »

Working out of my garage, I have been thinking about solutions to my dust problem. I made a power tool cart with my router, band saw, horizontal belt sander, scroll saw and chop saw all on one cart with heavy duty casters, and I simply wheel it out into the driveway and lock the wheels in place. When I am done working, any residual dust is blown into the empty dirt field next to my house using my leaf blower. In the winter months, this is less of an option for obvious reasons, and this has...

Dust Collection Tip (Shown on Bandsaw)

12-21-2012 04:12 PM by Shanem | 2 comments »

So first off I have a 14” Ridgid Bandsaw and have made a few modifications to it including a riser kit. I’ve made a jig to saw up to a 4’ log into boards. The thing works well but creates a lot of dust and the dust collection on this saw was the pits. I’ve seen the dust mod idea on the site a few times and it makes perfect sense. The little trick I found when doing this mod is that I used a 4” piece of 4” dbII (type of electrical conduit). I usually...

New Shop! #8: The dust collection.

09-17-2012 01:33 AM by Ryan Haasen | 8 comments »

Today I installed all of my dust collection ducts. As I mentioned in the previous blog, I was going to do PVC ducts, but with all of the talk of static explosions, I went with metal ducts from Lowes. It was about a 7 hours overall between laying it our on the floor first and then putting it in the framing. The ducts will be covered in drywall soon, so I made sure it was all together nicely. I ran all of these ducts 6” and I will reduce to 4” below the ceiling for the machines with...

Dust Collector Choice

02-28-2012 02:51 AM by rockinmichael | 24 comments »

I’ve recently been in the market for a new dust collector. I really care about filtration, but do I really need a shop fox or grizzly portable cyclone, or should I go for a cheaper single stage model. I am just a hobbyist with a small shop in a two car garage. Any recommendations?

Shop Projects #1: Cyclonic Dust Collector

02-13-2012 01:50 AM by DevilDogNurse | 2 comments »

Well….. Having moved to the basement to take another shot at this wood working hobby (it’s currently 25 degrees outside!!!) I now need a way to clean up without destroying a shop-vac filter every day…. So I acquired a 58 gallon (Yes, I said 58 GALLON!!!) plastic barrel. I paid $25 and found it on Craigs List. God Bless the internet! If anyone is in the Chicagoland area and needs barrel’s let me know, I’ll pass on the guys info! So the Barrel is really nice. It...

Machine mods, oddities, and fix-ups #2: Belsaw planer dust collection

12-21-2011 10:17 PM by Loren | 2 comments »

Belsaw dust collection The steel chute was salvaged off an instant hot water heater. Be careful of the swing of the planer handle. If this chute were placed any closer to the centerline of the cutterhead, the Belsaw crank handle would not clear the center port of the chute. You might get away with just making a 4” hole in the top of the planer, perhaps offsetting it in some way to not conflict with the swing of the crank handle. In any case the chips won’t go straight ...

Work(shop) in Progress #12: reorganizing Single Car Garage III - Give or Take a Few

09-05-2010 03:58 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Had some good progress on the garage reorganization, Although it may not look like it. To start, I wanted to tackle all the medium sized lumber that was now roaming around, scattered on the floor in various locations as it no longer had a dedicated place. I had 4 kitchen cabinets that I got off of craigslist a couple of years ago hoping it’ll help me get organized, but in the end, it just took wall space, and didn’t prove to be very useful, as it was just left as is, and ended ...
