Does this look right? dust collector confusion

294 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

430 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...

Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks

454 days ago by mickeyt | 20 comments »

Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks This is my first blog so I hope I get it right. I bought a used 733 a few months ago that did not come with a dust collection hood. After getting it home I had to try it out, ran a pine board through it and blew chips and dust 5 foot . Well being frugal as I am, no make that cheap I decided to try and make something to get me by until I could find a factory hood. This is what I came up with, I have been using it for a few month...

An idea for dust collector modifications #1: Modifying the standard collector, would it work?

457 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Since I’m involved in whole house renovations at the moment I won’t get to building it for awhile but maybe someone might and find it doesn’t work and put me out of my misery in thinking about it. I have one of those 1 1/2 hp delta dust collectors. One side is the motor and impeller. The other side is the round metal hoop with a bag on the bottom for the chips and a bag on the top for air expulsion and dust. I took...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #23: Thien Thing (build), Different Day...

524 days ago by DIYaholic | 5 comments »

Yes, this is ANOTHER Thien Top Hat Pre-Seperator B(uild) log, or blog if you will!!! I have the in/famous HF 2HP DC, which has been “Hot Rodded”, but that will be another blog entry. My build was inspired by Pitbull over on In The Workshop with Charles Neil. While that build inspired me, I took many liberties and ultimately came up with my own design. (FYI: I’m using a 30 gallon galvanized trash can as my collection bin.) While researching the build, I stumpled upon th...

Dust Collector #1: GRRR! I hate it when work get's in the way!

550 days ago by Dallas | 5 comments »

A few months back I bought a 1HP, 13 gallon bag HF dust collector at a very good price, new in box during a sidewalk sale at HF.I think I paid around $60 for it but the wife tells me it was actually only $35.It was an open box, but I couldn’t see where there was anything missing or anything that had even been put together and taken apart. I plugged it in at the store and it seemed to run just fine so I took a chance and bought it. I set it up in the shop, using 4” thin wall pip...

Making an Internal Thien Baffle for a HF Dust Collector

551 days ago by Rex B | 15 comments »

I was lucky enough to get the popular Harbor Freight 2 HP dust collector for Christmas. People have modified that thing in every way imaginable, so I found plenty of inspiration out there when planning what to do with mine. I decided to keep it fairly simple: a Thien baffle inside the dust collector’s separator ring, to hopefully keep the dust in the bag and not in the filter. A lot of people have done this mod, but most of them don’t post pictures because it is so simple. So I fi...

Dust Collector

587 days ago by chazmonro | 14 comments »

I modified my Harbor Freight dust collector. I run it through a dust separator first which works like a charm, and then the fines end up in the black can. I was tired of struggling with the bags so I added the black plastic can, i went overboard on the lever latches.
