After much research and hours of Youtube videos my dust collector rebuild is complete. It consist of a 2hp Woodworks Warehouse dust collector connected to a Oneida Dust Deputy exhausting into a new (from eBay) $129 Donaldson P511332-016-002 UAS ULTRA-WEB Cartridge with 320ft of filter area and a Merv 15 rating. I had looked at Wynn filters but this has 20 add’l sq/ft of filter and was $35 cheaper and came with free shipping. I don’t have any calculations but the suction has inc...
After many years of using a single stage then upgrading to a 2-stage trash can collector. I’ve finally upgraded to a Dust Deputy cyclone. My original DC filled the air with dust every time I turned it on and it wasn’t very air tight. My dust collector is a 2HP Woodworkers Warehouse Reliant NN-820. The spec sheet says it’s capable of 1185 CFM’s with 5” ports and the motors heavy, really heavy. My design is based from kdc68’s design: http://lumberjocks.co...
Here is the result of forgetting to empty a dust deputy bucket during a project. View on YouTube
As part of setting up my wood shop, I decided adding a dust collection system was high on my priority list. I did a fair amount of research (somewhere between due diligence and mild obsessiveness) and did my best to make the decisions that fit my needs. I decided to post some information here since I got a lot of good data and advice from others here (and other sites). Sorry if this gets a bit long. Please note that I recognize there are many opinions on the “right” way to ...
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 ...
I ordered, some time back, a kit from R, and some flexible hose from WC for a 2.5” systemsince mine is powered by a shop vacwith a dust deputy and a grease barrel filtering out the stuff the shopvac doesnt like Lets start with my Table Saw, since its where the system is centered. The panel I made and mentioned in last blog entry fell off and was always a temporary thing anyway. so i made one out of 3/8 recycled plywood, drilled and installed with screws ( another temporary fix ti...
Here are some pictures of a cart I made with one of the Oneida Dust Deputy cyclone. One of the features that I really like about what I made is the outlet/switch on the side. It allows me to plug in something, such as router table and then have an easy on/off switch for the vacuum. Also, the vacuum had a tray attached to hold the attachments and I mounted that to help hold the attachments. I will also say I am amazed at how well the cyclone protects the filter in the vacuum. Here is...
Dust Collection for my Radial Arm saw I was getting tired of all the saw dust plastered on the wall behind the RAS, and on the floor, I decided to explore You Tube to find out what ideas I might be able to use in my effort to maintain a clean shop.Here is the link to the design I decide to use with slight modification. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRFjRvQTckMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9TyYI800cw You will see that my dust hood has a taller opening but is not as wide as hi...
Since I did the Dust Deputy Review in Episode 27, I have been getting questions and have decided to answer them publicly with a video so everyone may benefit from the answers. In this video I show how I reinforced the 5 gallon bucket lid that I mount the Dust Deputy to. In Episode 28 I gave information to help the woodworkers decide which shop vacuum size might be the best to use with the Dust Deputy. Here are the last 2 videos: Episode 27: Dust Deputy Review Episode 28: Choosi...
In my last video I did a review of the Dust Deputy and showed how effective it is. This prompted several people to ask me about what size shop vacuum is necessary to work with the Dust Deputy. So in this video, I decided to explore that question and share the results with you. Even if you are not planning on using a Dust Deputy, you might find the information helpful in your decision to buy a shop vacuum. If you have not seen how effective it is, check out my previous video where I r...
