Until recently the dust collection system, in my basement shop, consisted of a broom, dust pan and window fan. Then a really good Craig’s List find and some some subtle hints from Mimi (”YOU do the dusting and you’ll see just how bad it is!!”) has upgraded the old way. Although the system isn’t the most powerful- 1 1/2 hp- it has really made a difference; especially when I remember to open the correct blast gate. One thing I discovered is in order to maintain pea...
I’ve been working on putting together a dust collection system for my garage/workshop. I couldnt turn down the great deal on the Harbor Freight 2 HP dust collector and then of course since I saved so much I just had to make up for it by throwing on a Wynn cartridge filter. I was having a hard time deciding on 6”, 5” or 4” duct for the ducting system. The HF dust collector has a 5” Impeller plate opening so going with 6” didnt seem to make sense as the sy...
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...
had a bondo kit sitting around so i made a dust collection chute a la David Drummond (thanks for the idea!) it was a small bondo kit so i might have to go over it with a second coat. it’s fairly rigid already tho. this was my first time ever using a fiberglass kit for anything.
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...
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+). Please follow this LINK to view the project. ThanksSteli
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.
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...
