Machine mods, oddities, and fix-ups #2: Belsaw planer dust collection

12-21-2011 10:17 PM by Loren | 2 comments »

Belsaw dust collection The steel chute was salvaged off an instant hot water heater. Be careful of the swing of the planer handle. If this chute were placed any closer to the centerline of the cutterhead, the Belsaw crank handle would not clear the center port of the chute. You might get away with just making a 4” hole in the top of the planer, perhaps offsetting it in some way to not conflict with the swing of the crank handle. In any case the chips won’t go straight ...

It also didn’t interfere with my work.My sweetheart was setting up her display of Dickens carolers yesterday, & mentioned she should have a light post. I surprised her, & made one for her. I’ll show it...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #7: Things to do 12/04/2006

This one is also out of the order intended, but I’d like to keep these things together. I still haven’t completed the workshop reorganization project. There seems to be so many distractions that sidetrack me. I recently made a combination shield, & dust hood for my lathe. I looked at a lot of them that you can purchase, but I opted to design my own to fit my own lathe better. It slides under my lathe bed. I guess you can put this into “Getting workshop organ...
