Three or four weeks back I installed my dust collection duct work, what a god send. I can’t believe the difference it has made to my enjoyment in the shop and can’t believe I did not make this a priority first off.
So, to continue in the war on dust theme I in a two pronged effort made some extra shop projects. 1. To assist in the clean up and collection of dust and 2. To try to make a dent in the large quanitity of scraps of timber and ply/MDF that are always in the way.
Simple projects and would not normally have posted but a couple of guys asked that they let them know how I got on when I started my dust collection.
First up is a cart to hold both my vac and collector can. I modified the plan from one of the Woodsmith books which had a similar cart but built to house a can with a cyclone. I had the castors for this one, the plan suggested 3” lock castors but mine were 2- 1/2” with no lock. The ply was cheap packing crate 3/8” stuff laminated two sheest together and a 1/8” sheet of hardboard either side to give me an inch thickness.
