Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

10-19-2010 12:56 AM by zzzzdoc | 465 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

1956 DeWalt MBF 9" Radial Arm Saw #7: (Less) Dust in the Wind

03-09-2011 01:26 AM by NBeener | 37 comments »

How does a dog get the LAST bit of water out of his bowl ? With a half-lap :-) Spent too much time figuring out how to get Hurricane Walter to spew less dust, or—at least—how I could capture the dust he spews. Shroud seemed like the way to go. So …. with leftover plywood from the construction of the ol’ ChupaCaja, I made me a dust collection box. ID is about 8” wide x 8” deep x 8” tall. The joinery is (IS it called this ?) half-lap (...

Router Table & Tabletop Upgrades

05-09-2015 06:35 PM by Roger | 32 comments »

1st let me apologize for the this small novel… Anyhoo, I decided to do a bit of upgrading to my old router tabletop. I found a few gr8 deals here: (http://www.ustoolandfastener.com/) at a decent cost, imo. While adding the new Woodpeckers top, Kreg Precision Insert Plate (3/8” thick) & optional rings, and, a twin pack of Kreg featherboards, here are some pics after the new additions, which include 2 drawers for storing some of the accessories, bits, etc., and better dust coll...

New Woodshop Construction #2: My "Green" Dust Collection System

02-06-2008 03:43 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 31 comments »

Not “green” in the environmental sense, mind you…but green in a very literal sense. I’ve spent literally months planning out most of the details of my new shop, since before they broke ground. One of the features I was most anxious to include that I was unable to have in my shared garage space was an honest-to-goodness central dust collection system. One of the earliest decisions I needed to make: metal or plastic? Metal of Plastic? I first read Sandor Nagyszalan...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #31: Charles Neil + Bill Pentz + Stumpy Nubs = One great episode!

12-20-2012 10:06 PM by StumpyNubs | 29 comments »

This week Charles Neil visits the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to help make me smarter; with the help of Bill Pentz we begin our three episode dust collection series with a big ol’ wooden cyclone; and I talk hand plane physics with the Japanese. Plus a review of the Wixey digital angle gauge, tips on doing segmented glue-ups, and why my abs don’t look like Tommy Mac’s… that and a whole lot of fun on this episode of Blue Collar Woodworking! After you watch this one, visit St...

Dust Collector Choice

02-28-2012 02:51 AM by rockinmichael | 24 comments »

I’ve recently been in the market for a new dust collector. I really care about filtration, but do I really need a shop fox or grizzly portable cyclone, or should I go for a cheaper single stage model. I am just a hobbyist with a small shop in a two car garage. Any recommendations?

Dust Collection #2: Dust Collection #2

01-23-2017 01:22 AM by Roger | 23 comments »

The saga of dust collection continues.Here is a pic of my HF dc before: And here is the same HF dc today: Because I’ve noticed some reactions to that nasty stuff called dust, I’ve been trying to do what I can to help myself and my lungs live a while longer. Being retired, and on a fixed income, I’m doing it on my once a month payday.. Trying to get the best bang for my buck I guess. Anyhoo, here are a few more pics of piping my shop w/4” pvc. Questions, suggestio...

Dust Collection #5: Dust Collection #5

03-31-2017 11:43 PM by Roger | 23 comments »

Just a quick fix for plunge router dust collection hose that needs to be up and out of the way. It don’t get anymore redneck than this ladies and gents. Works grrrrrrrrrr8! The bungie cord keeps it up, and keeps it flexible. Total cost…. Ohh I don’t know, maybe 3.87…. LOL. Just so’s you’s know’s…........ I do have one long hose that I’ll use for “sweeping” up here and there, thus the longness of it,my “hot-rod&...

Dust Collection Issues. #1: 100% improvement for $100 and a couple of hours.

09-07-2012 12:44 AM by shipwright | 22 comments »

Last winter Steve (kizerpea) posted this home built canister filter. It caught my attention because I had a large DC system in my Canadian shop that employed a bag filter. Having just done a canister conversion on my HF DC in AZ (how’s that for acronyms), I was all ears especially the part about using truck filters. .... FREE truck filters. It has taken me a while to get around to it but today I was at the point where that &%^$#&^# dust bag needed to be cleaned. I HATE clean...

Delta 50-760 with Cyclone Retrofit.

04-29-2012 11:46 PM by TechRedneck | 21 comments »

I have declared war on dust in the shop. My shop is in the basement/garage and I have been spending more and more time there. Recently I was planing/jointing around 100’ of rough cut cherry for a project which produced a lot of sawdust from all the power tools used. As a hybrid woodworker, I like to get my wood from the mill and prep it myself, saving money. Once I get the stock flat and square and within 1/8” or less then I switch to hand tools. I purchased a Delta 50-76...
