Dust Collection Foot Switch Kick-Start

12-30-2018 03:32 PM by steliart | 12 comments »

Dust Collection foot switch kick start A few years back, I purchased a dust collection remote control which was supposed to be for ALL type of DC as Woodcraft advertised. Unfortunately is not for all types of DC. My DC has a magnetic switch thus the remote system will stop the DC but it will not start the motor, so every time I had to switch in on manually bending down to the motor switch and to stop it I just used the RC by pressing it twice, one time to stop the DC motor and a second tim...

Dust Collection by the Numbers #2: Terms and Definitions

04-29-2018 12:49 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

It’s been a few weeks since I first started this discussion on dust collection systems and the math/science behind it. There is a vast amount of information available out there and all of the variations on how to size a DC set up. Here are some basic terms to get things started: AIR FLOW:cfm (cubic feet per minute) is the volume of air being moved by the blower. 350 – 45 cfm is required for dust removal on a table saw fpm (feet per minute) is the velocity the air is mov...

Dust Collection by the Numbers #1: Where to Start?

04-14-2018 01:02 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

You are probably wondering why there is yet another dust collection blog, forum, review, or question. It seems like the topic comes up a couple of times a week asking mostly the same questions and giving mostly the same answers. I was switching out the blade on my saw and noticed that there was a a pile of saw dust and chips in the cabinet space under my Delta Unisaw. The 4” port to the dust collection system was covered as well. At first I thought there might be a larger piece of...

Hey Lumberjocks, I’m not here to sell you anything. However I do want you to check out this product I’ve developed called Magport. I’ve been a woodworker for many years and I began developing this magnetic fitting system several years ago in an attempt to make connecting and disconnecting flexible dust collection hose fast enough to keep up with my workflow. Often I rearrange machinery to accommodate super long boards which requires flexibility in the dust collection. ...

Remote Controller for my Dust Collection system

05-08-2017 04:33 PM by Tim | 0 comments »

This is a remote I built for my dust collection system. I only wired in one 240v circuit to my garage a few years ago, never expecting to need another. Vice installing a second circuit, I decided to maximize the existing circuit while designing my remote controller for my dust collection system. This site is where my inspiration came from. I already had the 120v remote, which was being used for my original HF 1hp blower. Now, my DC remote controller is using a DPDT 240v relay that requi...
