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.

01-23-2017 12:19 AM by Druid | 11 comments »

As we all seem to be using a wider variety of different wood types, I have been searching for information regarding potential problems resulting from exposure to unfamiliar wood. During my search, I found a fairly extensive list of cautions related to different Wood Species on The Wood Database site at . . .http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/wood-allergies-and-toxicity/ Dust collection adds to the cost of a properly equipped workshop, but this information should help to determine w...

Workshop Dust Collection System #3: Adding a DIY Floor Sweep

12-29-2016 02:41 AM by grumpybear7357 | 3 comments »

I have had my Dust Collection (DC) system in use for about 6 months, but have never taken the time to add a floor sweep. Although I have shop built plywood dust chutes for my jointer and table saw, neither machine was built with Dust Collection as an integral part of the machine design. My DIY dust chutes work well, but I still get a small amount dust and chips on the floor from each machine. My surface planer does facilitate dust collection, however I still get a small amount of dust and ...

Daves Workshop #3: Using a cheap Harbor Freight riveter for awesome dust collection ductwork joints.

12-20-2016 03:01 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

If you, like me have been putting your dust collection system together with screws, STOP IT, those screws stick into the duct work and can snag stringy stuff and clog things up for you. Not a good thing. In this video I show you a great, serviceable alternative to screws. View on YouTube

In the continuing road of dust collection, Wynn, Donaldson, and many other filter places, Since adding the Onieda Super Dust Deputy to my collector, I’ve been wanting to buy a canister filter for my H.F. 2hp dust collector that many of us have. After numerous hours on here and throughout the gr8 internet, I finally pulled the trigger on this one: It is a Grizzly H5783. It’s actually a replacement canister for the Grizzly dust collector’s, G0548/Z & G0562/Z, but this fit...

In todays video, i explain how a Thien trash can cyclone separator fuctions. These things REALLY do work far better than you can imagine. I am considering doing a fresh build to fix some annoyances I have my my 55gal version (Too heavy) and have a build on video, so if I do go that route, I will publish it and link it here for you to enjoy… A couple of changes to note. I made this video MUCH shorter than my last couple, and I am trying to improve the audio quality by using a separato...

My Shop #3: Dust Collection

Recently, one of my customers offered to swap this cyclone from a school wood shop for a product in my store. It was perfect for my needs so I jumped on the opportunity. Having several pieces for the duct work already, I did not have to buy much to get it set up and going, The worst part was finding the time! Using 5″ flex hose I rerouted the air flow to go through the cyclone. The bag only gets what...

Dual Miter Saw station #6: Making/attaching the doors

11-11-2016 09:48 PM by Tooch | 3 comments »

After finishing the face frame, I knew it was time to build some doors to make the station look a little more complete and also keep dust out. Because of the shop vacs, the plan is to only build 5 doors, that way there will still be enough airflowfor the vacuum to work properly. The first step was to route a bunch of pieces for the frame. When cutting a bunch of pieces that need to be the same measurements, I find it’s easiest to stack them up and cut all at once. Afte...
