Ok, its not pure wood project, but works so good that I just MUST show it.
Like all of us, I hate dust. So insted of blowing it away, I tryed suck it, and it works very well.
Now my work table is obviously cleaner (dont mind dust on scrollsaw in pictures 2 and 3 – its from previous big project).

If admin think its off topic, please delete it.

Breathing it in and cleaning it up take us away from the build at hand.

It seems to me that the problems caused by too much dust and debris laying around make this a very relevant project.

Nice work.

Although some may argue this is more appropriate as a Blog posting, I want to thank you for sharing your idea for scroll saw dust collection! You may well have come up with the best approach I’ve seen. This is a problem I’ve been thinking about for some time. Thank you for this great idea!!!

P.S. Maybe you could share the construction details and component specifications in a blog?

P.P.S. TO Acdministration: Even if you do think this is off topic, please do NOT delete it as this is too good not to share!

It’s wood related because it is for cutting wood. IMHO
How about these guys that rebuild an old plane?? most are steel.

Hi Grumpymike , This might answer your question…it is posted by the site owners(management) , and you have to read it BEFORE you can even post a project : )

Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood
If it doesn’t fit the above description (like tool gloats & upgrades, wood gloats, projects in progress etc.),
either blog it or post it in an appropriate forum. Otherwise it will be removed.

The only handplanes I’ve noticed in the project area are ones that the guys have made new knobs or totes for , or made from wood : ) Happy Thanksgiving !

Thank you all for nice words.
Transparent hose is 10 mm diameter, sealed in connector with hot glue pistol.
Plastic T connector – cheapest from heating or plunbing, about 40 mm diameter.

Sorry, cannot explain in inches, for me measurements in inches is biggest mistery in the world.

Have your say...
