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 ...

Dust Collection Issues. #1: 100% improvement for $100 and a couple of hours.

09-07-2012 12:44 AM by shipwright | 22 comments »

Last winter Steve (kizerpea) posted this home built canister filter. It caught my attention because I had a large DC system in my Canadian shop that employed a bag filter. Having just done a canister conversion on my HF DC in AZ (how’s that for acronyms), I was all ears especially the part about using truck filters. .... FREE truck filters. It has taken me a while to get around to it but today I was at the point where that &%^$#&^# dust bag needed to be cleaned. I HATE clean...

Hylophobia

08-25-2012 12:32 AM by Dan Corbin | 7 comments »

Hylophobia is the fear of trees, wood, and wooden objects. So I’ve spent the last while researching dust collection for my workshop, mostly because I don’t want to have to sweep every few minutes. Man, did I open a can of worms!!! I started looking at the dust deputy, but was concerned that it wouldn’t power a stationary system like I want to install. The big Jet or Delta blowers and bags are expensive and take up too much room. Because I’m an engineer, I like to...

12" home made disc sander

08-11-2012 05:26 AM by higtron | 2 comments »

I’ve been building a disc sander that is powered by my lathe it’s constructed with plywood, and consists of four pieces that have to be put together in sequence to form the disc sander. the first piece has a key that slips in the tool slot on the bed rail of my lathe it forms one of the chambers of the dust collection, it also recieves the dust colection shroud (or would that be called a cowling?) the first piece slides up tight to the power head on my lathe. The se...

Delta 50-760 with Cyclone Retrofit.

04-29-2012 11:46 PM by TechRedneck | 21 comments »

I have declared war on dust in the shop. My shop is in the basement/garage and I have been spending more and more time there. Recently I was planing/jointing around 100’ of rough cut cherry for a project which produced a lot of sawdust from all the power tools used. As a hybrid woodworker, I like to get my wood from the mill and prep it myself, saving money. Once I get the stock flat and square and within 1/8” or less then I switch to hand tools. I purchased a Delta 50-76...

my weekend workshop #2: Miter Saw dust shroud

04-21-2012 01:57 AM by noweyrey1 | 3 comments »

Today was more of an experiment than anything but I’m satisfied with how it turned out. I was tired of sawdust going everywhere in my garage when I used my miter saw, so decided to try build a shroud out of some scraps and some vinyl sheeting so the dust collector could be more effective. I have a shop vac under the miter saw that collects the dust from the saws port which doesn’t collect much at all. Eventually I’ll build a more permanent cabinet with a downdraft table unde...

My New Tool: 15 inch Powermatic Byrd Helix Head Planer

04-13-2012 09:54 AM by Boxguy | 3 comments »

Addendum: I have had my Powermatic for two years now and have planed hundreds of boards it is still working flawlessly. I have not as yet rotated the cutters. My only objection is the loud clunk it makes at the start. I wish they would have added a soft start to the motor. Yes, this is an expensive tool, but if you are going to work in your shop several days a week, like I do, it is a joy to use and makes woodworking much more fun. After 30 years of using my trusty Makita 400mm ...

Video response to Stevinmarin's video on dust collection on his new router table.

04-04-2012 05:04 AM by Scott H. | 7 comments »

This is my first video. I just wanted to show Steve the opening in the bottom of the doors on to the router to help collect dust. I do have ear protection but, my camera man whom is my fiance’s son was wearing them, otherwise I would have had them on. I haven’t got this posting video’s down yet, so I don’t know how to post it so that it shows up to watch on lumberjocks instead of just the link. Please feel free to comment. I always welcome constructive criticism. So ...
