My old planer finally gave out so I upgraded to the Dewalt. First, I have to say I love this planer. It works great and comes with a built in blower to remove the chips from the cutting head, which also works really well. I tried using the planer without any dust collection attached to the blower and let me tell you, it will blow chips 20 feet easily!

Therefore, I needed some way to contain the chips in my shop. I copied Kelly's design (thank you) extensively at: http://widgets.lumberjocks.com/project/100027.

This is two chambers, with the hose connected to a 4 inch 90 degree angle from Rockler. This blows the chips into the main collection drawer which is sealed with silicone and weather stripping. The air then blows into the second chamber through another 4 inch 90 degree angle. This chamber is also sealed with silicone and weather stripping. The air exits through a regular house HVAC filter that can be easily replaced.

I expected this to work well, but I was surprised at exactly how well it works! Hope this helps some of you out, and again, thank you Kelly.

Interesting approach to DC for your planer. I have the same planer and I hook it to a garbage can separator then into the main DC. The blower on the planer wreaks havoc with the vacuum system pressure profile and a lot of the chips and dust wind up in the cyclone and either drop out into the dust bin or go through the blower into the pleated filter. I like this idea where the blower on the planer pushes the dust into the dust bin on the cart and the air is vented through the furnace filter.

Do you have problems with the planer blower plugging?

Just excellent. Wish I had could have built those features into my planer cart.

Aaron, that looks awesome! I really like the drawer, much more convenient than setup.

Earl – I haven’t had any problems with the planer blower plugging, but I have only run a few boards through it.

Have your say...
