yet another shop vacuum cart

04-17-2017 10:39 PM by metolius | 0 comments »

ShopNotes No. 109 has a shop vacuum station with a dust deputy that I have long marked to give a try. Having a mini cv06 clearvue on a 30 gallon drum attached to a hugely barrelled shopvac/blower required a few changes. I wanted a way to conveniently separate the drum from the cyclone for emptying. There are many examples of different configurations I found to do this with a magnetic lifts of the top, or a leveraged lift of the drum, etc. While ho-humming on how to go about it, I h...

My Shop #3: Dust Collection

12-06-2016 07:01 PM by Kent Shepherd | 2 comments »

I have owned a Jet Dust collector for some time now, and have always hated emptying the bag. Recently, one of my customers offered to swap this cyclone from a school wood shop for a product in my store. It was perfect for my needs so I jumped on the opportunity. Having several pieces for the duct work already, I did not have to buy much to get it set up and going, The worst part was finding the time! Using 5″ flex hose I rerouted the air flow to go through the cyclone. The bag only gets what...

Shop Tools #1: Building a Wood Cyclone

08-04-2016 07:01 PM by htl | 7 comments »

I was thinking about building a bigger wood cyclone but really the one I have works great so why build a bigger one, then it hit me I really never showed all the pictures of this build so here’s a how2 of my build a year or so later. 4/13/15Before this I built a Thien baffle style outfit. It was a self contained two bucket system that worked just about as good as my wood cyclone.Here is a picture of the two systems working together but saw no need for the two bucket job once I had the ...

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...

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...
