Shop Upgrade - 2014 #1: Extreme Makeover - Shop Edition

43 days ago by scoobydooo9r | 3 comments »

Well, just about a week or two after I finally got around to shooting a shop tour video, I decided to finally purchase a drum sander which forced me to rearrange the shop. Of course, since I knew that changes were coming, I also decided it was as good a time as any to really take a look at the shop and fix the nagging problems that I encounter here and there. So, here’s a short list of things that will be upgraded: 1. Dust Collection 2. Shop Layout 3. Lighting 4. Too...

Dust Collector Testing and Upgrade #1: Dust Collector Upgrade – Pt 1 – Upgrading to HEPA Cartridge Filter

53 days ago by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

I have wanted to do some upgrades for my dust collection system for some time now. But before I add the new HEPA cartridge filter from Wynn Environmental, I want to take some measurements. I test my system as it is now with a felt bag that is supposed to filter down to 1.5-2 microns and get a reading. I test with and without an Oneida Super Dust Deputy. Then I add the HEPA filter and take some more reading and compare the results. I know this is some pretty dry material; however the ...

Basic Dust Deputy DIY Collection System

87 days ago by kevinbradshaw | 5 comments »

My first blog. I’ve just recently gotten into woodworking and quickly realized that even small projects create a lot of dust. And since I have two little girls in the house and I have asthma, I decided that I couldn’t keep working without some sort of dust collection system. I don’t have much space, and I didn’t want to spend tons of money, so I decided on the Dust Deputy DIY. It’s pretty basic: Shop-Vac, large plastic bucket (I was going to use a 5-gallon ...

Season of shop upgrades #1: Shop Improvements

159 days ago by PJ72 | 3 comments »

This past year I have occupied my shop time in efforts to organize the shop and spent the time to build several shop tools and accessories. Having a garage shop that is primarily used for parking cars; it has been a constant challenge to optimize the space as a part time woodworking shop. This year I removed everything from the garage to thoroughly clean and re-organize the shop. I painted the walls and added 8 banks of overhead fluorescent lights to brighten up the space. Free up Spac...

Home wired remote dust collector switch

182 days ago by Garth | 5 comments »

I guess this would be more an electrical project than a woodworking project, but I thought I would post here as some might want to make something similar. I wanted a remote switch for my Harbor Freight dust collector. I looked at the ones in woodworking catalogs; however, I was concerned about their reliability, as may people have said they die after a year. Falling asleep one night, I came up with a way to easily make one. In short, I used a $10 wireless remote switch to run a contac...

New Tools

187 days ago by Jerome | 2 comments »

I am currently working on a set of built in cabinets for two areas designated for them. I will do a big specifically on the project soon. Along the way I discovered that I did not have all the “necessary” tools for the job. The first realization occurred when I began cutting the base molding. My miter saw was just 7” and I needed a few more inches to cut the base molding. I could have used my table saw to cut it, but rather than going through the table of that, I looked on C...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #5: Mounting the table saw

208 days ago by Garry | 0 comments »

A few months ago I bought a hybrid saw so I could remove the legs to mount it on my mobile workbench. I built a box to support the saw and house a chute to channel the dust to the exhaust port. My original intention was to slope the front panel all the way back to the outlet so the chute that came with the saw wouldn’t work. During construction, I ended up with a square chute to get steeper angles and extended the suction pipe into it. I realized later that I could have saved some effor...

Does this look right? dust collector confusion

258 days ago by raydawg | 6 comments »

I pulled off my dust collector bag, delta 50-850, tonight and found this ring of super fine dust setting around the top of the dust collector pan. It is a very fine silt sawdust finer than talcum powder. is it normal to have this around the edge? Shouldn’t it be getting sucked down into the bag?

Getting my tools ready #11: My version of the thein chip collector

394 days ago by DocSavage45 | 17 comments »

Having assembled my shop equipment, and watching Stumpy Nubbs show on chip collection for the lower budget…MINE! LOL! Went to my local box stores to purchase a trash can and I was sorely disappointed at the quality of the product in more than one store. At present I have no money for tools. So I remembered the burn barrel I purchased last year for $&.%). Checked it out…price increase. 10 bucks! Had to clean out dried peanut oil! Another fun task? Lots of fun c...
