Replacing Start Capacitor on Delta 50-763 Dust Collector

01-11-2013 12:50 AM by ToddinNH | 0 comments »

Recently my Delta 50-763 dust collector stopped working. When I turned on the power all I’d hear was a loud humming noise but no motor revolutions. After doing some research and speaking with the folks at Delta we determined it was a bad motor starting capacitor. If you’d like to learn more about how to replace it please check out an article I wrote on my own site. http://www.homeconstructionimprovement.com/how-to-replace-start-capacitor-dust-collector-motor/

New State, New Shop #12: Up-grading the Dust Collection

01-10-2013 06:06 PM by DrPuk2U | 4 comments »

When I first set up my shop, I bought a Delta 50-760 DC. It works well enough, but when jointing and planing a lot of wood the plastic bag fills up fairly rapidly and it is a PAIN to take off, empty and then re-install. Once you get the hang of it, the process is easier but it’s never easy and it almost inevitably ends up with a bunch of saw dust all over. So I decide to invest in a Oneida Super Dust Deputy. By the time I got it, I had realized that the fact that the Delta was mob...

Dust Collection #1: DIY Dust Extractor with Shopvac and Router Speed control

12-24-2012 01:17 AM by ichbinpete | 6 comments »

I was laying in bed the other night, when the wife noticed I was a bit to distracted (not responding to her conversation). She leaned over and saw me looking at Festool stuff and started in on me…see I just bought a used 3HP Powermatic DC on craigslist and still had my lil 1HP Delta DC and a shopvac. Oh yeah, and I just added a PM air filter hanging from the ceiling. Needless to say, she shut down any thoughts I had of getting a Festool extractor, and rightly so! Not to be discour...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #29: I had a dust collection breakthrough while eating tapioca from a hospital trash can.

12-02-2012 01:00 AM by StumpyNubs | 9 comments »

The other day I yawned and a thick cloud came out of my gaping mouth, floated around my face for a moment and then was sucked into my nostrils as I inhaled my next breath. For a moment I assumed it was a cloud of pipe smoke, like my grandmother used to puff out in rings above her head to impress us kids on special occasions and weekdays. But since I don’t smoke, I knew this was something more serious. (Tired of reading? Listen to Stumpy read this for you below. Or read on like a stuc...

Bandsaw Dust Collection

10-21-2012 08:07 AM by Brett | 10 comments »

As I continue to make more projects out of wood, I find that I rely on my bandsaw for more and more of them. The bandsaw is great for cutting curves, resawing wood and for cutting blanks for woodturning. The bandsaw is very versitile and comes in useful for many projects but it does have one major drawback, SAWDUST! The bandsaw makes LOTS of sawdust. Not only does it make a lot of dust, it throws it around too! A majority of the dust settles in the lower wheel housing and stays there. ...

Improved dust collection for contractor style table saw

10-16-2012 06:11 PM by rmoore | 4 comments »

I use a shop vac as my dust collection system with a dust separator I built. I came up with this design to block off the opening in the back to keep the dust from flying out. While the shop vac doesn’t catch all the chips, it does keep the fine dust from flying around in the air. The first picture shows it all together. The second shows it in pieces. The third shows the hardest piece to get right. I cut notches out to go around the splitter and motor mount and added some ...

ClearVue Cyclone Installation #2: Cyclone and Piping

09-24-2012 08:40 PM by jmos | 13 comments »

Cyclone – The cyclone itself wasn’t too tough to assemble. I do have to admit I would not have minded if the unit had a little less of the erector set feel to it. Everything was well made and solid. All the parts were there. The direction are good, and available online if you really want more detail. I didn’t take step by step photos as they are already included in the directions. I contacted ClearVue a couple of time during the build and the they were great to work wi...

ClearVue Cyclone Installation #1: ClearVue Cyclone Installation

09-24-2012 07:51 PM by jmos | 0 comments »

Since I started woodworking about 2 years ago I’ve been using a Powermatic canister dust collector along with a overhead air filtration unit for dust control in my basement shop. It did a nice job of chip collection. But, after a while I noticed there was always a layer a fine dust all over the shop. After a while I did some searching and found Bill Pentz’s site on dust control, and decided I should try to upgrade the filter cartridge on my DC, so I bought a Nano filter from ...
