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...

Magnetic Fitting System for Dust Collection

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...

After Several years (9 on this site) after setting up shop and posting 41 projects, multiple blog and forum posts, I’m doing a retrofit of the shop. Nothing spectacular, just adjusting a couple of things. I’m getting ready for the next 41 builds. On my radar pretty much in this order: A bridal chest for my daughter who’s getting married in September, A kitchen table, on of the last pieces of furniture of the house after a complete remodel of it and furniture, A dining table ...

I do have one long hose that I’ll use for “sweeping” up here and there, thus the longness of it,my “hot-rod&...

Tablesaw Workstation #1: Fence Purchase

03-27-2017 02:49 AM by Gingzillaman | 0 comments »

Today I purchased the Vega Pro 50 fence system. I had some Amazon Points saved up and decided this was the first major upgrade I wanted to do in regards to the workshop. I did a lot of research and reading on different fence options. This fit the budget and did not require much tweaking for install. I was looking at the VSC fence and making the rails but I just didn’t want to fuss with all that. I am more focused on building a safe and functional table saw workstation with ample capacit...
