Portable Cyclone cart #1: Finished

02-04-2016 10:10 PM by MikeMcK | 2 comments »

After hours (no make that days) of trolling Pinterest looking for ideas for my Dust Deputy I came up with this design. My main goal was to eliminate as many 90 degree turns between the cyclone and the shop-vac.

Dust Collection #5: Remote Start for Dust Collector

01-22-2016 03:56 AM by ThomasLightle | 6 comments »

I hate having to maneuver around the shop to turn on my dust collectors. A lot of times I don’t remember until I have the cut all lined up and ready to go. I hope this small modification will make things a little more convenient.In the post-Christmas clearance, I found a set of Christmas light remote switches. I checked them out and they were rated for 120v and 15A, so I decided to try them out on my equipment. They were around $7, so it wasn’t a big gamble. I like how it tur...

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

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...

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...
