Dust Collection #1: Modified HF Collector with super dust deputy

11-25-2015 07:43 PM by FFRNDAN | 9 comments »

Hello all, I’ve been a long time lurker, this will be my first post. I bought a HF dust collector a while back, and am working on modding it to meet my wants/needs. I am working out of a 2 car attached garage (read 1.5 car), so dust control is important. I dont want to exhaust outside, because I heat the garage at times in the winter. This garage is also shared with my wife’s car, so floor space is at a premium,like most of us. So, I decided to think up…. Here is where...

I built a particle separator that used a thien baffle in 5 gallon buckets. It has a small footprint, all one vertical unit, rolls around, has onboard hose storage and works great. Watch video.

Unisaw 34-802 T2 Cleanup, Alignment and Modding

09-28-2015 07:28 PM by bmwman91 | 6 comments »

EDIT: It looks like wide images don’t fit well into the format here. Any tips on the recommended max image width to use and that sort of thing? 25% of the right side of most of my images seem to be chopped off, which I can fix by shrinking the images, but I feel like they would get pretty small in that case! Hello everyone. This is my first time posting something on here, after many years of lurking silently and absorbing a ton of knowledge from the good people on here. I figured tha...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #3: Creating the shop workspace

09-16-2015 07:37 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

I spent over a third of my recent life in a small home with a single-car garage. One year for Christmas or my birthday, my wife bought me a set of Simpson Strong-Tie brackets designed by them to be all you needed (metal-wise) to build a shop bench. You got to pick the dimensions and, in part, the layout, but the bench would have a top surface and a shelf. I never got to build it while married to her because she kept filling up the garage with yard-sale junk. I had a narrow path from the g...

Industrial Scale Dust Collection #1: Old System Doesn't Suck Enough

08-05-2015 06:56 PM by Mainiac Matt | 11 comments »

I’m up to my elbows in alligators lately overseeing a sizeable project for our Wood Department at work, where we manufacture crates an pallets. After shutting down our 10,000 s.f. architectural millwork operation last fall, we decided to expand our existing 20,000 s.f. crating shop into that space. We underwent a complete shop re-organization, utilizing a manufacturing engineering process called Systematic Plant Layout. It was a 7 month adventure and greatly reduced the inefficien...

PVC Dust Collection Blast Gate - self cleaning design with a detent feature

02-17-2015 05:23 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! I recently added a Clearvue Cyclone dust collector to my shop. I plumbed it completely with 6” and 4” PVC piping. I needed a way to close off each branch to maximize the performance of the dust collector. Commercially available plastic blast gates are way to cheap and clog easily. The metal blast gates that solve this issue are p...

Shop improvements #1: Dust and noise

09-02-2014 05:24 PM by jshroyer | 0 comments »

This past weekend was labor day in america so i decided to spend a lot of time working in my shop. Just had an idea to help improve the shop some. My shop is in the basement of my apartment/townhouse. I dont have much room down there and i knew there were some issues so i decided to start to fix some of them. The first was my issue with dust. My apartment’s HVAC is in the basement like most houses. There is an air intake to the whole apartment as well in there. That is an issue for m...

Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 02:37 AM by Sk1pp3r | 1 comment »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...

Home made Cyclone system video (ENG version)

10-13-2013 09:33 PM by CarpintHero | 1 comment »

This is (again) my homemade vacuum cyclone system. I added this to my blog but the video was in spanish. Now I have decided to have the english version, so … excuse my poor english :) It consits of two empty paint buckets and some vacuum hoses. Most of the sawdust and particles stay in the buckets and only a little portion of the fine dust goes to the vacuum bag. Keeping the vacuum bag empty, means that you can use the same bag for months without having to buy them, and also...
