Improved two stage dust collector mod

07-31-2014 02:25 AM by Praedo | 0 comments »

I wanted a dust collector for my garage workshop. A single-stage collector just wouldn’t do it: I had to have a dual-stage with a large bucket for chips. I have a two-car garage and two cars to park in it, so all of my equipment must be mobile and have a small enough footprint to fit around the perimeter at the end of the day. I didn’t have the budget for a true cyclone, so I decided to modify a regular single-stage dust collector. I wanted the chip bucket to have a large capac...

My Cyclone Vacuum Cart

01-14-2014 02:32 PM by Garth | 1 comment »

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...

Home made Cyclone system video (ENG version)

10-13-2013 09:33 PM by CarpintHero | 1 comment »

This is (again) my homemade vacuum cyclone system. I added this to my blog but the video was in spanish. Now I have decided to have the english version, so … excuse my poor english :) It consits of two empty paint buckets and some vacuum hoses. Most of the sawdust and particles stay in the buckets and only a little portion of the fine dust goes to the vacuum bag. Keeping the vacuum bag empty, means that you can use the same bag for months without having to buy them, and also...

Time lapse Woodworking #17: Walnut Bubinga Vacuum Bag oh my (-:

05-23-2013 03:57 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

In this time lapse woodworking video I’m using a vacuum bag to laminate 2 panels together, to create a single 3/8’’ thick panel with Bubinga and Walnut on either side. I had the 2 different veneers already on a mdf substrate, so it was simply cutting to size applying glue and turning on the press. Hope you enjoy and thanks for watchingPaul

Building a Dr. White's Chest #2: Multiple Mortise and Tenon Joints

05-01-2013 12:58 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Multiple Mortise and Tenon Joints I’ve owned a Leigh dovetail jig since the early 90’s. I started with the 12” model that I used for drawer construction. I switched to the 24” model so that I could join the top of a case to the sides with a through dovetail joint. I bought the M2 multiple mortise and tenon attachment for the 24” D3 jig prior to building a book case that was to hold a tremendous amount of books. I wanted more glue surface and strength than a rabbet joint could pro...

DIY wood stabilization #1: Creating a vacuum container

01-05-2013 12:30 AM by shampeon | 17 comments »

The thermoplastic handle scales on my folk’s Wüstof knife broke, and I thought I’d replace it with some wood scales. I had some offcuts of claro walnut that were the right size, but I wanted to make sure that the new walnut scales would hold up to kitchen use. I did a little research in some knife-making web sites and forums and learned a bit about wood stabilization, where you impregnate wood with some material (epoxy, resin, etc.) to harden it and make it more durable. Some h...

Saw dust removal system project #1: Saw dust removal project

12-27-2012 06:04 PM by Fridgecritter | 5 comments »

Working out of my garage, I have been thinking about solutions to my dust problem. I made a power tool cart with my router, band saw, horizontal belt sander, scroll saw and chop saw all on one cart with heavy duty casters, and I simply wheel it out into the driveway and lock the wheels in place. When I am done working, any residual dust is blown into the empty dirt field next to my house using my leaf blower. In the winter months, this is less of an option for obvious reasons, and this has...

Vacuum Frame Press/Assembly Table

03-14-2012 03:21 AM by Ger21 | 4 comments »

Since it may be another 2 years before I finish this, I can’t really post it as a project, so it’s going here.I’ve been using my Joe Woodworker vacuum bag and press for about 10 years on and off, and have done a lot of veneering with it. (See my kitchen in my Projects). But I’ve always wanted to build a frame press, to make it easier to do larger parts, and make sure my veneered panels were flat.At the same time, I’ve also always wanted an assembly table, as I t...

Shop Projects #1: Cyclonic Dust Collector

02-13-2012 01:50 AM by DevilDogNurse | 2 comments »

Well….. Having moved to the basement to take another shot at this wood working hobby (it’s currently 25 degrees outside!!!) I now need a way to clean up without destroying a shop-vac filter every day…. So I acquired a 58 gallon (Yes, I said 58 GALLON!!!) plastic barrel. I paid $25 and found it on Craigs List. God Bless the internet! If anyone is in the Chicagoland area and needs barrel’s let me know, I’ll pass on the guys info! So the Barrel is really nice. It...
