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...
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
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...
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...
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...
Hi Here I show my newest adition to my shop, my homemade vacuum system. The video is in spanish but If you have any questions feel free to ask :) The dust showed is from 2 weeks or so of ocasional woodworking. As you can see, the vacuum bag is almost dust free, and the machine keeps all his power I really recommend trying this thing Thank you for watching
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...
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...
For those who already have one of these, you’ll understand my enthusiasm. For those who don’t, get busy building one. I don’t have a dust collection system, just a 16 gallon shop vac. I’ve been looking at these for months now. I finally got a barrel from work and started building. After cutting the first baffle too small, I got the second one right. I wasn’t expecting it to work as good as it does, but, boy am I happy with the results. When I first turned it o...
Vacuum splitter and a ‘dust can’this one is for Dan / Maveric. Yes the dust goes to Dan this blog is dedicated to him and his recovery… Why? Because Dan just had a terrible time and this might have some roots in the dust from the shop! I personally sometimes sneeze and cough when I am done with sanding and I have had my thoughts on this for a while.My Vacuum is a shop vacuum, but just a standard one from Atlas copco and I used simple 50 mm 2 inch plumbing to distribute it s...
