Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

03-22-2009 05:01 AM by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

Dust Collection #2: infiltration.... filter me this, filter me that

01-13-2009 04:34 AM by PurpLev | 28 comments »

I ordered a 0.3 micron replacement filter from Wynn Environmental to replace my Jet DC1100 30 micron bag. Originally I was going to make a simple review for people to benefit from my experience with the new filter I got… but since it had gotten a bit more complicated, I figured this is blog-worthy, and the ‘regular’ review will follow once I experience more the performance of the filter. Disclaimer: I have had nothing but great experience from Wynn Environmental, from ...

Dust Collection

11-04-2007 06:17 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 38 comments »

Dust collection is a very important issue in the shop. It is critical to health and general safety. Dust collection adds to the efficiency of the shop because the dust goes straight into the collection container and does not have to be swept up after being worked in and around. It is achieved in as many various ways as woodworkers can think up. Here is how I have chosen to do it in one shop. These views are from my brother’s shop in Ohio where I am currently working. Point of Us...

Tools #5: Overhead Blade Guard

11-02-2007 05:46 PM by mot | 9 comments »

I’ve been meaning to blog this for awhile. I’ve gotten a few messages asking about my blade guard so I wanted to give the story. As many of us know, the blade guards that come with standard table saws are awkward to use and often get taken off and never replaced. My original motivation for the blade gaurd, however, was not safety. It was dust control. When I set up my shop in my basement, I got overhead dust filters and dust collectors with piping. After cutting with my t...

My New Router Table #3: Finishing Cabinet Assembly and Dust Collection

11-07-2007 09:09 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

This project is really coming together. That biscuit jointer really makes quick and easy work of cabinet assembly. I have never really gotten a chance to use it before. I ordered an Incra Magni-Lock router plate through Woodcraft. It seems to be on the slow boat. But hopefully it will come at about the time I need it. Anyway, more chronicles of the progress I made on my day off yesterday: Here is the cabinet fascia with half lap joinery, 3/4” x 2” Beechwood (the most inex...

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?

Dust Collection #1: (Finally) Upgrading from a Shop-Vac

08-15-2008 10:02 PM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

So for the longest time I’ve heard how much a Shop-vac doesnt quite cut it when it comes to larger machines, and how much quieter “real” DC machines are compared to a shop-vac, but being a weekend warrior, my budget is limited, and space was a big issue for me until recently (we just moved, and I have a full garage to work with now – will be blogged soon as well). Lately I was eyeing some Delta AP400 machines that float on craigslist once in a while for very attract...

Dust Collection #3: Fine!....... particles that is

12-01-2009 04:33 PM by PurpLev | 32 comments »

After many months in the planning, designing, and reding on other peoples builds of air cleaners, the day before Thanksgiving I came upon an ad on craigslist of a JDS Air-Tech 2000 Model 750. I figured that if I was to build one – it would end up costing about as much as the JDS model, but will not have the same filtration quality, it’ll be heavier (wood construction as opposed to metal frame), and it’ll take me time to build it. time that could be used to build woodworking ...

auto vacuum for my miter saw

09-24-2007 03:19 AM by joey | 2 comments »

Well I got myself out in the shop lined up the fence for the miter saw and leveled it to the bench. I also drilled and ran the vacuum hoses to the saw, at first I wasn’t sure what to use to connect the hose to the saw but 1 1/2 PVC pipe works fine with a couple of wraps of duct tape to snug it up I placed a small vacuum that I use to use to clean out cabinets after I installed them under my bench, it is small enough that it really don’t take to much room and is a powerful l...

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...
