Daves Workshop #3: Using a cheap Harbor Freight riveter for awesome dust collection ductwork joints.

12-20-2016 03:01 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

If you, like me have been putting your dust collection system together with screws, STOP IT, those screws stick into the duct work and can snag stringy stuff and clog things up for you. Not a good thing. In this video I show you a great, serviceable alternative to screws. View on YouTube

Installing Nordfab Ductwork

05-09-2013 05:06 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

After installing the Clear Vue CV1800 cyclone, the next step was to install the Nordfab ductwork. This video shows you how I did the job and how this system works. <h2>History</h2>Over the years, I have tried a few of the common options out there for ductwork including home store HVAC, sewer & drain PVC, and economy snap-lock pipe. Below on the left you can see my old HVAC ductwork system in my first shop in Temecula, CA. I was running a Penn State Tempest cyclone at the time...

Setting up dedicated woodworking shop #5: Reviving life to the shop!

10-05-2011 03:29 AM by Scott Wigginton | 1 comment »

Wow, can’t believe its been 3 years since I’ve really been in and around my shop! Let’s just say life has been busy and higher priorities have derailed me for awhile. This summer we decided to build a new house on our property and while thinking about actually having an attached garage got me tinkering in Visio. While looking at the plans with a coworker he noticed some of my handtools I was planning to move into the shop and found out he was a fellow WWer. After sever...

Setting up dedicated woodworking shop #4: Nature abhors a vacuum

03-24-2009 05:01 AM by Scott Wigginton | 4 comments »

It seems the laws of nature apply to my workshop. I spent all of last time cleaning it up to make nice open space and what should happen? I got and fill it all up. Acquiring more tools than space is a national pastime so I’m not sweating it, especially with the sweet deals I’ve been landing. Turning circuitry into Power tools I hoard computer parts, its ingrained into my geekdom. Never did I think it would ever help me in my quest for more bigger-badder powertools. Thanks to some...

2nd Hand Cyclone

07-17-2008 04:21 AM by DocK16 | 11 comments »

I’m always scowering the want ads, classifieds, and flea markets for bargains. I have always wanted a central cyclone system for the shop but at at $1000 plus they have always been out of my price range so when I saw this in the local bulletin board at less than 300 I snatched it up. Now I’m finding that 6 inch duct work including Y’s and elbows costs 3x what 4 inch costs. Kinda like 8 inch jointers costing twice much as a 6 inch. So I’m asking LJ’s for any le...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #6: Revamping my Dust Collector ductwork

11-19-2006 09:33 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 7 comments »

I just put this into this series to tie things together, but it’s not in the proper order, so bare with me.. Hi,Today, 6/21/2007, I changed the name on this blog, so members could find it easier. Things sure get haphazard, & messed up when you by a new piece of equipment, especially when you’re cramped for space. I bought a new planer about a year ago, & I’ve been in a tangle ever since. The first thing I had to do was rearrange all my power tools. After tha...
