A big thanks to all my LumberJocks friends. I have finally gotten around to spending my prize money from this winter’s LumberJocks contest. Here it is, a Grizzly G0548Z 2Hp dust collector. I have modified it with a 14” Chinese Wok to imitate the Jet Vortex DC1100.

Rick,
How is your dust collector mod. working so far. I’ve been looking to get a dc and am debating between just paying for the Jet/Powermatic and modifying the Grizzly like you did. Any updates would be appreciated.

Hey Chris,
I will let you be the judge…. I took some pictures of the inside of the filter. This is after using the planer, jointer, table saw, and band saw…. about a 1/3 of a bag of dust. So it is a good all around test of dust particles. After taking the picture of the inside, I put the filter back on and turned the brush handle, and then pulled the filter. This is a picture of the dust that came out of the filter. Now I don’t have any way to compare the dust collector modification because I never used it in stock condition. But I can tell you this dust collector has a lot of suction and I am very happy with my purchase. I have it plumbed up to my machines now and the performance is fantastic. The only thing that changed was the sound level…. it is much quieter.
