I just added a follow-up video of my review of the Laguna 2 HP Mobile Cyclone Dust Collector. In the video I discuss how Laguna delivered a new pre-assembled replacement dust collector, and show what was fixed and what wasn’t.
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 recently joined the ranks of woodworkers that use a dust collector. In my case I purchased a 2 HP mobile cyclone unit from Laguna Tools. The following two videos show my experience purchasing, setting up, and using the dust collector. Although I’ll be keeping the dust collector for reasons explained in the video, in the end I wish that I had bought a competing product from another company. In this second part of my review I wrap up some of the frustrations that I’ve expe...
Here it is a month later, and this little fixture is proving to be a better idea all of the time. I used it in conjunction with my drill press on a bunch of projects, and couldn’t be happier. I can capture about 95% of the waste from my brad point bits, which keeps the work surface a lot cleaner, and virtually eliminates the mess on the cabinet the drill press is mounted on (I have a benchtop drill press mounted to a rolling cabinet). Big Forstner bits still throw off some shaving...
If anybody has been following my workshop updates, you’ll be familiar with the fact that I barely even have a “workshop” right now; it’s more like a tornado dropped tools, parts of a forest, and piles of sawdust and woodchips in my basement. I can only imagine that this is a freak occurrence, and it just so happened to pick my exact latitude and longitude. Maybe I should contact NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) in Boulder, CO since they’re just a s...
Today I learned an important lesson: The dust collector remote will fit right through the dust collector cleanup nozzle. I just finished routing some dados and was cleaning up, using the “shopvac” nozzle on my dust collector hose to suck up the stray dust around the router table. I heard something solid go in and didn’t think anything of it (I’ve sucked up a stray screw or brad before, it makes a neat tink noise going through the blower) but then when I looked for...
I finally finished the cabinet doors for my client, and at this moment my next job will not begin for another week or two. Thus, it’s time for me to turn my attention to the neglected shop. I mentioned that I had purchased probably the last Clear Vue dust collector from the previous owner, Ed Morgano, back in May. My first order of business – complete the dust collector room. I had already dedicated a place for the collector when I moved in, and roughed in the area. I knew I wa...
