An idea for dust collector modifications #1: Modifying the standard collector, would it work?

05-29-2013 09:58 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Since I’m involved in whole house renovations at the moment I won’t get to building it for awhile but maybe someone might and find it doesn’t work and put me out of my misery in thinking about it. I have one of those 1 1/2 hp delta dust collectors. One side is the motor and impeller. The other side is the round metal hoop with a bag on the bottom for the chips and a bag on the top for air expulsion and dust. I took...

Installation of a Clear Vue CV1800 Cyclone

05-09-2013 05:01 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 3 comments »

One of the most important safety upgrades you can make for your shop is good quality dust collection. If you run a bunch of power tools, it’s hard to argue with the effectiveness of a ducted cyclone system. When I first moved into the new shop, the folks from Clear Vue came down to help me install a new CV1800 cyclone. This 5HP powerhouse features a Leeson motor and a dual stack of Wynn filters. Because Clear Vue cyclones require some assembly, I thought it would be interesting to...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #6: Almost completed!

04-25-2013 09:27 PM by djg | 1 comment »

So my dust shroud is almost completed. I have now completed the overhead mount with guide wires for stalibization. The shroud has been mounted to the overhead mount and counter weighted although I may need a little more weight to make it easier to lift. I have added the adjustment knobs although i am currently short by one. The overarm duct was constructed using 4” ABS pipe. This setup was a little tricky. I had to use the bill pentz static calculator worksheet to figure out st...

Reinforced Mounting Lid For The Dust Deputy

04-23-2013 08:26 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 6 comments »

Since I did the Dust Deputy Review in Episode 27, I have been getting questions and have decided to answer them publicly with a video so everyone may benefit from the answers. In this video I show how I reinforced the 5 gallon bucket lid that I mount the Dust Deputy to. In Episode 28 I gave information to help the woodworkers decide which shop vacuum size might be the best to use with the Dust Deputy. Here are the last 2 videos: Episode 27: Dust Deputy Review Episode 28: Choosi...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #5: Ceiling Mount Completed. Blade Shroud Almost.

04-21-2013 08:08 PM by djg | 0 comments »

The ceiling mount is now completed with the exception of some tightening knobs. I screwed a few pieces of 2×4 across the ceiling joists since there was nothing above the directly above the table saw to attach the mount. I painted it white so it would blend in a little better with the shop. You can see that the mount is offset to the left of the blade but there is a horizontal L-Bracket that can be used to shift the shroud left or right over the blade. I had to use a couple of guide ...

Choosing A Vac For The Dust Deputy

04-20-2013 03:09 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

In my last video I did a review of the Dust Deputy and showed how effective it is. ​This prompted several people to ask me about what size shop vacuum is necessary to work with the Dust Deputy. So in this video, I decided to explore that question and share the results with you. ​​Even if you are not planning on using a Dust Deputy, you might find the information helpful in your decision to buy a shop vacuum. If you have not seen how effective it is, check out my previous video where I r...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #3: The Blade Guard Part 1

04-15-2013 09:55 AM by djg | 0 comments »

There are so many ideas on the internet for table saw blade guards…Some are good, some are not so good. The main thing is to determine the need and purpose. Well, the need and purpose is easy: Something to cover the blade and provide some way to deter the user from feeding their hand through the blade or making mistakes like trying to pick up a 1/4” cutoff that is sitting next to a spinning flesh shredder! Dust collection is secondary. Here are some issues that I have found wi...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #39: What Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant taught me about dust collection...

04-04-2013 08:36 PM by StumpyNubs | 17 comments »

Recently we did a series of episodes on dust collection, discussing everything from filtration through mustache cultivation to industrial sounding words like “cyclones” and “pipe”. We spent four episodes on it, and how those long winter weekends flew by as you gathered the family in front of the computer screen with cups of hot coco and excited giggles of anticipation. But I’ll be the first one to admit, this stuff all gets a little confusing. Dust collection ...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #25: Duck (or is it Duct), Low Ceiling!!!

03-23-2013 06:52 PM by DIYaholic | 13 comments »

My overall dust collection upgrades have been a long time in coming. There was always the plan to build a Thien Top Hat, reconfigure or “Hot Rod” the HF 2HP DC & run metal ducting in the shop. I was spurred into action because I was tired of wasting time switching out the flex hose from machine to machine & tripping over the hose. This latest upgrade is but another step in the metamorphosis from “Dungeon to Lair”. It is also a huge part of making my shop time m...
