Mini Cyclone Dust Collection Bucket Few friends message me and asked me if I can post this project also here in LJs than where I have it, because is easier for them to look at the project, so here it is.My cyclone dust collector bucket is very inexpensive and efficient. It only cost me under 20 Euros (about 25 U.S. dollars), easy to build in a weekend, and it can run with any normal house vacuum cleaner (recommended a 1600W+). Please follow this LINK to view the project. ThanksSteli
So I am warming up this new season with dust collection issue. I go through the steps to make dust collection for my contractor style table saw. This is mainly for me to get used to the new camera and video software if it is boring I apologize for that….. The better ones are yet to come.
I’ve been sick of using the 12” wide outfeed roller stand for over a year now so I’m finally making a fold down outfeed table that’ll only add about an inch to the depth of my saw cabinet when the table is folded down. Here’s my cabinet before the addition…. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27579 I had to take a different approach and make a frame attached to my cabinet and the cast iron wing of the saw. After attaching the support arms I added a coup...
So after the house was completed in March of last year, I began replacing the tools I had lost. I found a table saw, thickness planer and drill press that was in a shop being sold off by a widow. It appeared the poor fellow had not used a lot of the equipment for a while. There was lots of rust, and some makeshift fixes to the equipment. First was a 10” Craftsman table saw. I spent some time and a lot of elbow grease doing what I could for the surface of the table. I used a lot of...
This is the first in a series of on going posts that will describe how I accomplish a given woodworking technique, task or problem. With every woodworking task there are tens of dozens of ways to approach them. This is just my way… I picked up a 2 HP dust collector on sale from Harbor Freight early this year. I can’t say anything bad about it as this point, it went together as instructed and has worked flawlessly every time I turn it on. I had a dedicated 110v/20amp circuit ins...
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 ...
As winter comes up on the horizon I will be doing most of my work with the garage closed. That will make my dust problems even worse. I have had Asthma all of my life. It improved as I reached adulthood but probably not as much as it would have if I had not been smoking a pack a day for 15 years. Hey if you drank a fifth or two of Vodka a day you would smoke too! LOL All I can say for that is my 7 year old son got me to stop smoking last Christmas by telling me not to bother coming back in...
Sorry this component of my dust collection system didn’t get broken down into steps better, but I was juggling so many things at once (workshop and family related) that I couldn’t get good photos and keep up with the posts. Here is the dust collector that I built from a recycled AC blower unit and how I came up with the design. I had a perfect spot high on an empty wall. It would be out of the way, but central enough to get good air circulation. Here is my planned location. ...
I’ve been doing a lot of investigation, research, and pondering about my new dust collector, so I figured I’d track my thoughts in the blog to hopefully save people time who are doing the same, and also to show how I ended up setting up and how I got there. I picked up a Jet 1100a dust collector on Craig’s List for $175, with a bucket of blast gates, hose claps, and reducers tossed in to round it out at $200 (and the bucket… never can have too many of those). It is...
First things first: I’m writing about something I did … I’m not saying you should do it. Use your own judgment and common sense! Read your manuals. If something seems dangerous, don’t do it. I’m no expert … not by a long shot, so don’t trust me over what your granddad told you or over what the little voice in your head tells you about keeping track of your digits and limbs. I welcome all supportive advice, feedback, and questions. Recently I bought...
