New Shop in the Raw #10: State of the Shop Part 3

04-14-2016 08:09 PM by builtinbkyn | 2 comments »

I wasn’t getting much shop time over the last few weeks due to my Dad’s health and issues. He’s somewhat better and holding his own thankfully, so I’ve had some time this week to get back here and work on a few little projects. I’ve been wanting to install the Wynn filter I bought for the DC and make a cyclone of sorts, so that’s just what I did. I had a 15g fiber drum hanging around and some Dustrite fittings I purchased for this, so that’s what...

Dust Collection #4: Trash Can Planer Chip Collector

01-18-2016 04:09 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Until I get my dust collector piped to the entire workshop, I needed to use something other than my shop vac to collect planer chips. The sheer volume of sawdust created by the planer required me to build some type of receptacle that is large and easy to empty. I used inspiration from John Heisz and came up with my own semi-cyclonic, trash can chip collector.Enjoy! Trash Can Chip Collector

A Dust Collection Journey #1: My introduction to woodworking

12-06-2015 10:50 PM by AZWoody | 0 comments »

When I first got into woodworking, I had just purchased my first house and bought a used fish tank I wanted to refinish. As I was working on it, I bought one tool, which turned into 2 tools, which turned into 3, and so on and so on. Eventually I was doing more in my garage and although it was cramped and not the best place to work, I continued to continue with my expensive addiction. Then I started to think what i could do to make things work a little better in there. Workflow, cleanup,...

Cyclone for shop vac #2: Dust cyclone - upgrade for the bin

11-23-2015 12:13 AM by mafe | 9 comments »

Dust cycloneupgrade for the bin Just a little upgrade.The system works really well and I love the easy way to get rid of the dust now.If I had a bigger shop I would have a bigger bin but for my limited work it is really great.In fact it’s only when I use the thicknesser a lot it is a too small bucket. But I got tired that a lot fell down the side when I had to empty it, so I made this little easy upgrade. A piece of thick MDF, marking the center.In the back you see a white plas...

Dust Collector modification #2: Complete

10-21-2015 02:36 AM by MikeMcK | 1 comment »

After much research and hours of Youtube videos my dust collector rebuild is complete. It consist of a 2hp Woodworks Warehouse dust collector connected to a Oneida Dust Deputy exhausting into a new (from eBay) $129 Donaldson P511332-016-002 UAS ULTRA-WEB Cartridge with 320ft of filter area and a Merv 15 rating. I had looked at Wynn filters but this has 20 add’l sq/ft of filter and was $35 cheaper and came with free shipping. I don’t have any calculations but the suction has inc...

Dust Collector modification #1: Dust Collector cyclone modification

09-14-2015 01:06 PM by MikeMcK | 0 comments »

After many years of using a single stage then upgrading to a 2-stage trash can collector. I’ve finally upgraded to a Dust Deputy cyclone. My original DC filled the air with dust every time I turned it on and it wasn’t very air tight. My dust collector is a 2HP Woodworkers Warehouse Reliant NN-820. The spec sheet says it’s capable of 1185 CFM’s with 5” ports and the motors heavy, really heavy. My design is based from kdc68’s design: http://lumberjocks.co...

Cyclone for shop vac #1: Dust cyclone - with house hold trash bags blog

04-18-2015 05:58 PM by mafe | 15 comments »

Dust cyclonewith house hold trash bags Yes I got tired of the mess each time I had to clean the shop vac when it was full.Also I was fascinated by these cyclones, have to admit I am a child.So when the prices for one of these finally hit the floor here in Europe I had to give it a try. Had two challenges, one that where my shop is, I have to deliver all trash in 15 liters bags, otherwise our trash suction system jams. Second, I wanted it to be standing under my saw, so it could not be t...

thien dust separator/collector

10-14-2014 07:01 PM by harum | 0 comments »

Finally got my version of thien separator working after several rounds of trial and error. Thought I could share my findings. It’s made of a 5 gal big-box bucket, plywood, and plastic plumbing fittings. A 32 gal plastic trash can was used for collecting dust. Silicone adhesive and insulating self-adhesive tape were used to make the separator and dust bin combo as air-leak-free as possible. This is inside the separator looking at the intake pipe (black) and the pipe (whit...

Improved two stage dust collector mod

07-31-2014 02:25 AM by Praedo | 0 comments »

I wanted a dust collector for my garage workshop. A single-stage collector just wouldn’t do it: I had to have a dual-stage with a large bucket for chips. I have a two-car garage and two cars to park in it, so all of my equipment must be mobile and have a small enough footprint to fit around the perimeter at the end of the day. I didn’t have the budget for a true cyclone, so I decided to modify a regular single-stage dust collector. I wanted the chip bucket to have a large capac...

Yet Another Souped Up Harbor Fright Dust Collector with Cyclone

01-22-2014 02:28 AM by Garth | 4 comments »

So I know that lots of people have posted their dust collection systems, so I thought I would post mine. Below is the final picture and a schematic of what I built. In short, it’s a Harbor Freight dust collector, a Wynn Engineering Filter, a salad bowl as an internal baffle, and a Super Dust Deputy cyclone. The dust connections are made with 4” rubber pipe connections to the tools. To top it off, I just made my own remote control switch using some relays and a $10 wireless remote fo...
