Dust collection #2: Improving workshop dust collection

06-27-2011 07:08 PM by dedalo | 2 comments »

I wanted to improve my home workshop dust collection, last proyect was a mess, all the house ended up filled with dust, and the rest of the familly unhappy. I was using my home vacuum and that was clearly NOT enough. locally you cannot get any woodworking aspiration system from under USD500, that without a cyclone and a low quality chinese model. I didn’t want to spend so much having other things to buy for the shop, so started the long (and funnier) way of building something cheaper (w...

1 – Parting the coneCut the top of the cone using the tip of a cutter, or a saw. When using the cutter done very carefully using the technique of chip carving (press cutting, no sliding).I left the straight (where the reflective) so that the cone is better to put at the top of the bucket.1 – Tronzar el conoCortamos la parte superior del cono utilizando la punta de un cutter bien afilado, o un serrucho. En caso de utilizar la trincha, hacerlo con mucho cuidado utilizando la técnica...

PVC Plumbing Dust Collection Solution

04-03-2011 01:00 AM by Brad_Nailor | 9 comments »

I have an old canister household vacuum that refuses to die, so I use it with allot of my hand held power tools, specifically my ROS, biscuit joiner, pocket hole jig, and a small belt sander. In the past to connect my tool of choice to the vacuum I would always jimmy rig something up with duct tape or just hold the hose on the dust collection fitting..not good. I went to Home Depot one day to look around in the plumbing section for a solution, and I found this…a 1” to 3/4” c...

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 (...

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+).

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.

A much needed outfeed table and dust arm in the making (update).

01-27-2011 03:33 PM by tedth66 | 6 comments »

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...

A workshop out of the floodplane #2: Cheap replacement tools

01-18-2011 08:30 PM by withheld | 5 comments »

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...

How I Do It: Dust Collection

11-08-2010 07:53 AM by DavidH | 5 comments »

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...
